It is with great sadness that Affleck Greene McMurtry LLP announces the passing of a great friend and one of our founders, Donald S. Affleck, Q.C.
Don was not only instrumental in establishing one of the first boutique litigation law firms in Toronto, Don was an architect for competition law in Canada. Don celebrated 50 years Call to the Bar in 2016. His contribution to Canadian competition law has set precedents.
“All of us at Affleck Greene McMurtry LLP and indeed the entire legal community have experienced a great loss.”, says Peter R. Greene, Managing Partner. “Don was my colleague, mentor, partner, and most of all, my friend for almost 40 years. Don, your legacy will live on. You will be missed.”
From all of us. Thank You Don for your contributions, your insight, your humour. You made us better lawyers, you made us think.
