As we enter the new year, we celebrate a remarkable milestone of one of our lawyers.

George Macdonald recently celebrated his 50th anniversary call to the Nova Scotia Barristers Society. George was recently featured in an article by Andrew Macdonald in the Telegraph-Journal:

“At 81, you can say George MacDonald is the dean of lawyers in Halifax, and the Atlantic region, who practice in commercial and construction litigation.”

“Question: At 81, is there any sign of retirement? ‘I always say my standard reply if asked is, “What does retirement mean?’ And people say, ‘That is when you can start doing what you love.’ ‘And that is what I have been doing for 50-years.’”

When asked about the highlight of his career, George recounted his work on the Royal Commission on the Donald Marshall, Jr., Prosecution. It was at the conclusion of his summation to the Commissioners, which was done publicly, that Mrs. Marshall gave him a hug. After the summation the Commissioners, with the aid of Commission Counsel, in private took several months to write the Report.

Congratulations to George on this recognition of his 50 years at the Bar! We are all very proud that he is part of Pink Larkin.
