Many thanks to our pro bono lawyers

Many thanks to our pro bono lawyers

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to our pro bono lawyers, Sean Hern of Farris Vaughn and Alison Latimer of Underhill, Boies Parkers, Gage & Latimer, who have represented FIPA in our Election Act challenge over the past four years. Without their dedication and hard work, we wouldn’t have been able to take this fight for freedom of expression as far as we did.

Sean has been representing FIPA in our Election Act challenge since the beginning in 2013. He is a partner at Farris’ litigation group, and has represented clients in a wide range of commercial, administrative and public law matters, including other pro bono cases for FIPA.

Alison joined FIPA’s fight in 2014 at the B.C. Court of Appeal. She is a partner at Underhill, Boies Parker, Gage & Latimer where she maintains a general litigation practice with a focus on areas of public law.

To show our gratitude, we have made both Sean and Alison honourary life members of the organization.
