Getting to Be a Habit?
In keeping with its long tradition of supplying the courts of British Columbia with its finest judges, TAGLaw member Harper Grey LLP is thrilled again to announce that another one of its most senior partners, Bruce Butler Q.C., has been appointed a judge of the Supreme Court of British Columbia effective immediately. Bruce will be sorely missed by the firm as will Chris Hinkson Q.C. who, as announced in our most recent TAGlaw news, was appointed a judge of the Supreme Court of British Columbia three weeks before Bruce. Harper Grey has now had four of its lawyers appointed to the courts of British Columbia in the last eight years - a real testament to the firm's litigation expertise.
