Harper Grey announced the appointment of Jonathan Meadows as the Vancouver firm’s next managing partner.

According to the firm’s Dec. 7 press release, Meadows’s strong leadership skills and unwavering dedication to the firm and his clients are essential ingredients to the firm’s continued success in providing excellent service and market-leading expertise. His solid management experience together with his well-rounded perspective and judgment will be of great value as Meadows builds upon the firm’s history and oversees the strategic growth of the firm.

Meadows will succeed Richard Bereti, who made a significant contribution to the firm since he was appointed in 2012. The firm is extremely grateful to Bereti for his drive, leadership and vision over the past six years. Bereti, a leading lawyer in the area of environmental law, will return to his practice full time.

Meadows was first introduced to the firm in 1995 as a summer student, was called to the British Columbia bar in 1997 and joined the partnership in 2005. He is also a member of the Yukon bar.

His practice includes advising and assisting physicians in professional liability and professional disciplinary matters. Meadows’ work on behalf of insurers includes liability defence, coverage disputes, professional errors and omissions claims, defamation, sexual abuse/assault claims and the resolution of complex construction disputes.

In another move, Daniel L.R. Yaverbaum has joined the firm’s commercial litigation group. He received a B.A. from the University of Toronto and attended law school at Dalhousie University. He was called to the Alberta bar in 2010 and the B.C. bar in 2013.
