Clay graduated from the University of Ottawa English Common Law program in 2003 and then articled in Winnipeg where he was called to the Bar of Manitoba in 2004. For the first few years, Clay carried on a general practice assisting clients with dispute resolution, real estate, and estate planning. In late 2007, Clay relocated to Calgary to work for a major Alberta-based law firm, acting for diverse clients including insurance companies, oil & gas companies, large retailers, manufacturers, and public bodies.

Since returning to Winnipeg, Clay has focused on assisting clients with estates, estate planning, real estate transactions, and family related disputes. Clay has assisted clients before: all levels of court in Manitoba (including the Court of Appeal); all levels of court in Alberta (including the Court of Appeal); the Federal Court of Canada; private arbitration; and before numerous administrative boards and tribunals.
In addition to practicing law, Clay is actively involved in the community. He currently sits as the Vice-President of Theatre Projects Manitoba and on the organizing committee for Winnipeg’s Timeraiser art auction. Clay volunteers regularly at the Legal Help Centre and with other community organizations.
