"I have always felt very privileged to work with the fantastic lawyers, staff and clients that we have in our Vancouver office," said Mr. Peters. "I look forward to working with the Vancouver team in this new capacity to ensure that clients remain at the heart of everything we do and that we continue to be valuable business advisors to our clients."
