Liz joined Robertson Stromberg in 1990 as a corporate and securities law specialist to help with the initial public offering of Cameco Corporation, as well as the corporate and securities needs of Cameco and Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan (PCS). She left to work independently in the mid-90s, but remained on retainer with Robertson Stromberg until rejoining the firm in 2013.
Before moving to Saskatchewan, Liz was the Corporate Finance Solicitor with the Ontario Securities Commission where she helped rewrite the laws for raising capital in the junior mining and oil and gas industries. She became a Special Legal Assistant to the then-Director, Ermanno Pascutto, and later became the Acting Manager of Finance and Administration.
After joining Robertson Stromberg, Liz taught the first Securities Law class for four years as a sessional lecturer at the University of Saskatchewan College of Law. For many years, she edited the Saskatchewan section of Canadian Forms and Precedents: Banking and Finance (Butterworths) and the Securities volumes of O’Brien’s Encyclopedia of Forms.
Liz holds both Canadian and U.S. citizenship and is multi-lingual.
Liz has worked extensively with many Saskatchewan ag-biotech, high-tech, and mining startups and public companies, including Western Ag Innovations, Prairie Plant Systems, Shuttlecraft, Fytokem, Philom Bios, Kipp & Zonen (née Sci-Tec Instruments), Great Western Minerals Group Ltd., and Great Western Diamonds Corp. (GWD), including the acquisition by GWD of the Rondonia Diamond Project (Brazil) from Santa Elina Mines Corporation.
Over the years, Liz’s clients have involved her in numerous international transactions and projects in Japan, China, Australia, Mexico, Ecuador, Brazil, Libya, South Africa, India, France, Germany, the U.K., Switzerland, The Netherlands, and elsewhere.
As a member of the Investment Committee of Saskatchewan Agriculture and Food’s Agri-Food Equity Fund (AFEF) for its entire duration, Liz reviewed and assessed dozens of potential investments. As Chair of the Saskatchewan Government Growth Fund Management Corporation (SGGF), Liz supervised the successful settlement of the multi-million dollar Ceapro lawsuit against SGGF, the Saskatchewan Government and Can-Oat Milling.
Liz was called to the Ontario Bar in 1984 and the Saskatchewan Bar in 1991. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of Cincinnati in 1976 (Magna Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa), her Juris Doctor from the University of Toronto in 1980, and a Masters in Business Administration, also from the University of Toronto, in 1982.
Liz is a member of the U.S. Society of Corporate Secretaries and Governance Professionals.
During her time as President and director of Saskatoon Habitat for Humanity, 14 houses were built in Saskatoon. Under her stewardship, the organization went from $70,000 in debt to almost $1 million in assets and revenue. Liz opened the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store which now helps fund additional houses for the working poor in Saskatoon. She stepped down from the position in the late 1990s.
