Charlie Spence q.c.

ASSOCIATE / Business Law


A detailed approach makes Charlie a great fit in the corporate world.

Charlie joined Miles Davison in 1982 and became a partner in 1984. His thoughtful and thorough work serves his clients well in his primary areas of practice: corporate/commercial, oil and gas, banking and securities, including equity and debt financing, corporate and oil and gas divestitures and acquisitions, oil and gas contracts, interpretation and resolution of contract disputes, and enforcement of security.

Charlie’s broad knowledge of the corporate/commercial world led him to being a lecturer at Mount Royal College and the University of Calgary, and he has also presented papers on the enforcement of security, claims against oil and gas interests, and oil and gas acquisitions.

Outside of work, Charlie is an outdoor enthusiast – skiing in the winter and playing tennis and sailing when the warmer months roll around.
