Well wishes for David Loukidelis, KC, on his retirement

After 7 years of practicing freedom of information and privacy law as associate counsel at Young, Anderson, David has decided to retire from the practice of law.

David has had a long history with the firm, having been an associate lawyer and partner at the firm in the 1990s, practicing primarily in the areas of real estate and development law.

David though was destined for a different career path. In 1999, he was unanimously appointed by the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia as British Columbia’s Information and Privacy Commissioner. He held that position until 2010, when he became Deputy Attorney General of British Columbia and Deputy Minister of Justice. Then, in 2012, David moved to Alberta and was appointed as Chair of Alberta’s Law Enforcement Review Board, the independent civilian oversight tribunal for police conduct and discipline in Alberta.

Over those years, we kept a close connection with David, leading him to return to the firm in 2016, this time as associate counsel.

Since David’s return to the firm, he has been an invaluable resource to our clients and a mentor to our lawyers practicing in the areas of freedom of information and privacy law. But David’s value does not stop in those areas. His reputation for providing wise counsel precedes him. He is a consummate professional, and he will be missed by us.

At a personal level, while David will no longer be practicing law with us, he will continue to be part of our family. We look forward to our ongoing friendship with David, and to making many more memories.

We wish David all the best.
