Vancouver, Canada – Fasken Martineau, a leading international business law and litigation firm, commented today on the decision of the Supreme Court of Canada regarding an original complaint filed by John (Mitch) McCormick in late 2009. The issue centered around Mr. McCormick’s objection to the terms associated with retirement planning for equity partners of the firm in British Columbia.
“We are satisfied with the decision, which reinforces our understanding of the law in British Columbia surrounding the terms of partnership agreements. This is an isolated issue that is unprecedented at Fasken Martineau,” said William Westeringh QC, the firm's managing partner in Vancouver.
