Silvano has had a wide variety of legal experience, but focuses in the areas of strata law, real estate litigation, commercial litigation and estate litigation. Silvano has appeared at every level of Court in British Columbia.
Silvano has extensive experience and has made arguments before various administrative tribunals, including the Civil Resolution Tribunal, the Human Rights Tribunal, Residential Tenancy Board and the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner for BC.
Silvano became a lawyer later in life and he has had the benefit of over 12 years of previous business and management experience, most notably in the heavy equipment industry.
Working in this industry and working with people in a variety of businesses has provided Silvano with a keen business insight and a practical approach to law. Silvano views himself as a risk manager and takes every step in litigation as a business decision with a constant goal of reaching practical solutions.
His approach helps his clients reduce the economic impact of litigation as well as mitigating the stress that inevitably accompanies litigation.
Outside of work, Silvano is a jack of all hobbies. While hiking and traveling have always been a constant in his life, Silvano enjoys trying as many new things as possible. Silvano also enjoys cooking and sampling wines from all over the world and particularly working his way through all of the Okanagan vineyards. But not all at once. That would be wrong.
