William M. (Bill) Gray, Q.C.

PARTNER / Business Law, Real Estate


Bill is a problem solver who works tirelessly on behalf of his clients to get deals done.

Bill conducts his practice with the core belief that there is a solution to every issue. His clients speak to his ability to guide complex issues to a resolution, and having helped corporations of all sizes and sectors through a variety of complex transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, and financing, Bill’s track record is a measure of his successful approach.

Whether closing a large cross-border transaction or providing general advice to start-up companies, Bill brings a wealth of experience and the same level of focus and attention to detail to every file he undertakes.

Bill is deeply involved in activities in the community: he is the Past President and remains on the Board of the Calgary Stampede and he sits on the boards for the Stampede Foundation, Saddledome Foundation and Quest Theatre, and on the advisory board of Vantage Foods. When he’s not attending to client cases or board duties, Bill likes to spend time on the links, particularly in Arizona.
