 Jennifer Cleall
Profile

Jennifer Cleall is a partner in Davis LLP’s Edmonton office where she practises corporate/commercial, real estate and environmental law. 

Jennifer is an industry leader in corporate organization and board governance. She advised on the structure and implementation of Alberta's ground-breaking greenhouse-gas-emissions regime through the establishment of an arms-length corporation set up to administer the money paid into the Climate Change and Emissions Management Fund by Alberta's large industrial greenhouse gas emitters. She also counsels two organizations focused on energy, environment and biological systems under the restructured Alberta research and innovation system.

Jennifer regularly advises on complex commercial real estate transactions, including those which involve contaminated sites. Recent transactions include the purchase and sale of a brownfield site in an industrial business park and the purchase of prime development real estate in both Edmonton and Calgary.

Jennifer’s environmental law practice includes a focus on climate change. She advises companies on climate change and environmental issues, including green-technology investment, carbon-trading transactions, provincial and federal climate-change regulatory frameworks, environmental risk and risk management, contaminated sites and foreign ownership of land.

Jennifer also acts as general counsel for a number of Alberta businesses in a variety of industries, assisting with their strategic planning and growth, commercial contracts, corporate governance and corporate finance needs. As a key advisor to each organization, Jennifer draws on specialized areas of the firm, including tax, litigation, IP and employment law services, to ensure that her clients’ legal needs are met in a timely, cost-effective and thoughtful way.

In 2009, Jennifer’s impressive practice and dedication to the legal profession earned her a Lexpert Rising Star: Leading Lawyer Under 40 award. The media often seeks her opinions on climate change and environmental issues. She has been interviewed by numerous publications and has appeared as a guest columnist on a leading energy and environmental-market website.

Jennifer has a strong commitment to her community and serves as a Director of Kids Up Front (Edmonton) Foundation. She is the past Co-Chair of the CBA energy, environment and resources subsection (Alberta North) and sits on the executive of her community preschool. She also volunteers with political associations on both the provincial and federal levels.
