Roberta J. Stewart
Roberta Stewart’s areas of strength are corporate organizations and reorganizations, commercial transactions such as buying and selling businesses, corporate/business succession planning, drafting and reviewing complex agreements and contracts, complex wills and estate planning and residential house purchases, sales and refinances.
“I love closing a transaction. Whether acting for a buyer or seller or completing a corporate reorganization, seeing a transaction to completion is very rewarding,” said Stewart.
Another source of professional pride for her is the influence she’s had on articling students just beginning their careers. As a veteran of the Prince George legal industry, she is frequently looked to for mentorship of students, new associates, and other professionals within the legal system.
That leadership and knowledge-base also gets passed on to clients as they work with her to complete some of the most important transactions of their lives.

On A Personal Note
Roberta originally comes from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and still cheers for the WHL Raiders, even when they come to CN Centre to face the Cougars.
Prince George has a similar profile to her hometown: a resource-based regional hub, so she felt comfortable upon arrival. She is now a fixture here in the local community, often seen on the running trails of the city and competing in an ever growing number of half-marathons. Roberta and her husband Steve take full advantage of the hiking and backcountry bounty this area has to offer.
She has applied herself to a number of local causes as well, volunteering for organizations such as the YMCA, MS Society and Crime Stoppers, to name only a few.
Roberta is happy with a good book and her dog and cat nearby, but if you are out on Mount Robson and you feel a rush of wind blow by, that might well be one of the city’s most driven lawyers completing the Berg Lake Trail, yet again on the run.
