Brent graduated from UBC Law School (now the Peter A. Allard School of Law) in 1956 and started his practice with Paine Edmonds LLP in 1957. He joined Jack Edwards and John Bouck in 1968 in what was then Bouck & Edwards and, upon his arrival, the firm became Bouck, Edwards & Kenny. Ron Bray joined soon thereafter and the firm became known as Bouck, Edwards, Kenny & Bray. After John Bouck’s appointment to the Bench, the firm renamed itself Edwards, Kenny & Bray, ultimately becoming Edwards, Kenny & Bray LLP, which has remained the firm’s name ever since.
EKB has been a vibrant and thriving firm for more than 50 years and Brent has been an integral part of that throughout those years.
Brent has had a long and distinguished legal career and is well respected as one of Vancouver’s eminent solicitors. He earned his King’s Counsel (K.C.) designation in 1990 and has continued to practice until recently. Brent has been at the heart of EKB for the last 54 years, bringing his leadership and leading by example as to what an excellent solicitor should be, and helping to develop its tradition of leadership and reputation for outstanding legal practice. Brent will be missed by all at EKB and by the many clients with whom he has formed business and personal relationships over the years.
We thank Brent for all his contributions, leadership and friendship and wish him well in his retirement.
