While the opportunity arises fairly regularly, it is not often that I take a moment to appreciate the publicly recognized merits of one of my colleagues. I count myself among the lucky in finding the practice of law interesting and enjoyable though often challenging. One of the reasons I am lucky is the people at my firm, lawyers and staff alike. They are consistently a pleasure to work with and are exceedingly professional, both internally and externally.
That is why I wanted to deviate from the general purpose of our litigation blog to highlight, and echo, the public recognition of one among my many colleagues at Lawson Lundell LLP. In addition to being a charming person, Ron A. Skolrood was recently profiled, in both official languages, in the article "A reformer at heart", published in the July/August edition of the Canadian Bar Association National magazine. He is deserving of this accolade. Now if he would only invite me over for his famous red wine-braised short ribs more often!
