Glenford's practice is focused on corporate commercial and regulatory issues in transactional matters, including mergers and acquisitions, private equity financing, and a broad range of business law contexts. He has significant industry experience in the food sector, relating to organizations that encounter a high degree of provincial/federal regulation and those that seek to challenge regulatory regimes under which food is produced and sold in Ontario and Canada. His clients include start-ups, not-for-profits, SMEs, and multinationals.

Glenford advises organizations on structure and organization, corporate governance, regulatory requirements, and compliance issues encountered by professionals in the food sector.

Glenford is highly active in the food policy / food security sector in Ontario and across Canada, through his positions as director, advisor, or executive member of various not-for-profits and charities. He co-organized the first food law conference in Canada and frequently volunteers with organizations that engage with food policy issues.

Glenford is particularly interested by the problems created through the intersection of food, technology, and regulation and he brings this passion to his practice, finding solutions to legal problems faced by his clients.

Prior to founding G.S. Jameson & Company, Glenford worked at a prominent mid-size business law firm in Toronto.
