Our firm is proud to announce that Cameron Ward has received the 2011 Bar Award, presented by the Trial Lawyers Association of British Columbia. The TLABC is the largest non-profit organization representing trial lawyers in this province, and it has bestowed this award annually since 1982. According to the TLABC’s website:
“…the TLABC Bar Award honours members of the profession who have demonstrated the ability and drive to go beyond the call of duty, whether for the benefit of their clients, the betterment of the legal profession or to further the cause of justice, in general, for the people of the province. Typically, recipients have given generously of their time in pursuit of improving the process of justice, protecting the rights of citizens or helping advance the interests of the profession as a whole.”
We are grateful to the TLABC for recognizing the work that Mr. Ward has done over his career. A list of past Bar Award recipients is available here.

The legal community has been shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of Donald Brenner, Q.C. The former Chief Justice had a distinguished career as a lawyer and judge and we remember him fondly for the wisdom and equanimity he brought to the problems we presented him with, both as a judge and, more recently, as a mediator. He was kind and unfailingly polite and will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
