THE ADVOCATE V O L . 7 5 P A R T 3 M A Y 2 0 1 7 471 BENCH AND BAR VOL. 75 PART 3 MAY 2017 The Mayflower set sail for what is now the United States in September 1620. That ship—together with numerous other English ships of the day—was named after the English hawthorn, which is also known as the mayflower and is a traditional symbol of hope. (The ship itself had transported cargo since at least 1609, so the hopes associated with it were not originally those of the Pilgrims.) Though the ship arrived in November 1620 the Pilgrims remained on board, with considerable hardship, over their first winter—we hope the migrations of our colleagues below have been much pleasanter! Isabel L. Romeral joins Edwards Kenny & Bray. Gowlings bids adieu to Jack Yong, Julia Winters, Lorena Vlad and May Au who move as a group to Lawson Lundell. Also joining Lawson Lundell, and setting up the firm’s Kelowna office, is Jeffrey Read who leaves Borden Ladner Gervais to do so. Simon B. Margolis, Q.C., once of Norton Rose Fulbright, and Barb Cornish and Mary Ellen Boyd, once both of Singleton Urquhart, join forces to open Cornish Margolis Boyd Mediation & Arbitration. After 20 years at Fulton & Company in Kamloops, Jeffrey W. Locke heads to Vancouver Island to join Stewart McDannold Stuart in Victoria. He is joined there by Trevor W. Morley, who moves from the Victoria-based firm of Carfra Lawton. Ravi Patel, recently called, moves from Ellis Business Lawyers to Learn Zenk in Port Moody. Terra Law Corp. brings Allison K. Godey on board. She was previously with Singleton Urquhart. Catharine Herb-Kelly, Q.C., once with Twining, Short & Haakonson, joins Branch MacMaster. Mary Buttery and Lance H. Williams recently set up shop at Cassels Brock having both previously been with DLA Piper (Canada). Nolan Hurlburt leaves McCarthys Lawyers who have moved their practices should fax details of their past and present circumstances to Peter Roberts at 604-669-1620 to ensure an appearance in “Bench and Bar”. Note that we do not report changes in lawyers’ status within their firms (from associate to partner, for example) other than in cases where persons formerly articled have been hired as associates.
