Margaret Anne Walsh, Dan Boone, QC & George Caines, QC, receive Stewart McKelvey Awards for their contributions to the Firm
For their many contributions made to the fabric of the Firm over the years, the second annual Stewart McKelvey Awards recognized Margaret Anne Walsh with the Innovator of the Year Award, Dan Boone, QC, with the Mentor of the Year Award and George Caines, QC, with the Spirit of Stewart McKelvey Award.
Charlottetown partner Margaret Anne Walsh was chosen as Innovator of the Year because of her dedication to various practice re-engineering initiatives and the enthusiasm she brings to the table when discussing such ideas, as Paul Saunders, practice innovation partner, shared.
Dan Boone, QC, was selected from a total of 27 nominees as Mentor of the Year. His former role as managing partner of the Newfoundland and Labrador office allowed him to advise lawyers and staff on a range of circumstances, which he continues to do in his role as a partner.
Over his 56 years at the Firm, Halifax partner George Caines, QC, has exemplified what it means to be a Stewart McKelvey lawyer, and has therefore received the Spirit of Stewart McKelvey Award. His efforts and leadership at the Firm are consistently recognized and celebrated among lawyers and support staff alike.
