"Working with family enterprises is the most challenging and fulfilling aspect of my practice as it requires multiple skills and provides the opportunity to advise across multiple disciplines in collaboration with other advisors. Every family and every business is unique. By helping them through their challenges I feel that I am making a difference, as well as making good use of my knowledge, training and experience."

A partner at Farris, Sally advises individuals and family business owners on all aspects of the inter-generational transfer of wealth, including estate, incapacity and business succession planning. Her practice includes trusts, wills and corporate reorganizations.

Before focusing on this area, she practised as a business lawyer for many years and was general counsel at a major public company. Sally provides clients with the benefit of her extensive business experience and possesses the strong interpersonal skills required to deal with often emotional and difficult situations. Working collaboratively with clients’ tax and financial advisors, she creates and implements comprehensive solutions for individual or business succession needs.

Sally has been appointed to the Executive of the Vancouver branch of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners Canada. She is also a member of the Estate Planning Council (Vancouver) and the Canadian Bar Association (BC Branch).

In addition to taming her garden and protecting it from the forest wilderness of Deep Cove, Sally loves to cook, travel and hang out with her children.
