In Memoriam – Chris Lewis, Partner, St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador
It is with great sadness that the Firm announces the passing of St. John’s partner Chris Lewis after a courageous battle with cancer. Chris began his career as a summer student in the St. John’s office in 1999 and quickly became a valued colleague and friend to those he worked with. Over his 20 plus years at the Firm, Chris was known for his easy-going good nature and work ethic, and always remained thoughtful and caring about his clients. Outside of work, Chris loved music and was a supporter of Beagle Paws.
Our thoughts are with Chris’ wife Sheila, his parents and their extended family during this difficult time.
For work-related matters involving Chris, please contact Managing Partner, St. John’s, Tauna Staniland.
