Tyson Hallan, Associate
As an articling student, I learnt quickly that there is lots they don’t teach you in law school about what it takes to be an effective advocate for your client. Since being called to the Bar, I have concentrated on honing my advocacy skills to ensure that our clients’ position is always well articulated and received no matter the venue. I have also come to appreciate how quickly the law develops, and how important it is to stay on top of legal developments and track emerging areas of law. In addition to taking the lead on a number of property related subrogated claims, I assist senior lawyers with more complex and involved matters, spanning all practice areas, by conducting research on substantive and procedural points of law which will contribute to the strategy used to resolve a difficult matter. I always expected that a career in law would be both challenging and varied and so far those expectations are being met and exceeded. Each day is different and can include participating in meetings and questionings with senior lawyers, drafting pleadings, conducting research or appearing in Court.
