After 43 years in the legal profession, all of them at EKB, associate counsel Terry Stewart will be retiring effective December 22, 2017.
Terry obtained his Bachelor of Arts (Economics) degree in 1971 and his Bachelor of Laws degree in 1974, both from UBC. Terry started at EKB in 1974 as an articled student to Jack Edwards and was called to the BC Bar in 1975. He became a partner in 1978 and associate counsel in 2016.
Terry’s primary focus during his legal career has been on business law in the areas of corporate structuring, mergers and acquisitions, financing and commercial real estate. Terry developed an expertise in multiple industries, including heavy equipment, aviation, and pharmacy.
For many years, Terry has been recognized as a leading legal practitioner in corporate law and asset equipment finance and leasing. He has been listed in Best Lawyers Canada, Martindale-Hubbell (BV Distinguished Peer Review Rated) and Lexpert.
Terry’s contributions extend beyond his clients, to the legal community as well. Among other things, he has been an editorial board member of the award-winning Continuing Legal Education Society of BC (“CLE”) publication, Advising BC Business, has been an author and a lecturer for CLE’s Buying and Selling a Business: Annotated Precedents, and was an author and a lecturer for the CLE publication, Personal Property Security Act Practice Manual.
Terry’s many contributions to the legal community and to EKB, in particular, will be missed. Terry embodies the collegial spirit of EKB and we will miss having him here. We wish him all the best in his retirement.
