The Honourable Donald Brenner, Q.C. Passes Away

It is with great sadness that we report Farris Senior Counsel Donald Brenner, Q.C. passed away on Saturday, March 12, 2011. Don joined the firm in 2009 after serving as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of B.C. since his appointment in 2000.

Farris Chair, Keith Mitchell, Q.C. who has known Don Brenner since they read law together, spoke on behalf of the firm:
“Don wore his achievements lightly.  But those who have had the privilege of working with him know that he was a person of far reaching accomplishments whose life served the law, our province, and our country. He was a prince of a lawyer and a treat to have as a friend.” 

Our thoughts go out to his family, friends, clients, and everyone who knew him. Don will be greatly missed.
