David Hughes*,

My focus is on information and privacy law, employment law, and commercial litigation.  I've worked as a lawyer in British Columbia for individual citizens, small and medium-sized businesses, First Nations bands, non-profit societies and two major crown corporations. My clients include telecommunications companies, an airport, a soccer association, a university, a property management firm, a title insurance company, as well as numerous trades and general contractors. For those clients I have prepared a variety of agreements, including operational contracts, releases and waivers, shareholders' agreements, commercial leases and employment agreements, as well as both bringing and defending lawsuits. I am hard-working, imaginative, and determined to help my clients succeed.
