It is with mixed emotions that Walsh LLP announces Ray Hunt’s retirement from the practice of law. Walsh LLP and Ray have immensely enjoyed many years of friendship and, with that, Ray’s numerous contributions to firm life, from his obvious care for his colleagues and the profession as a whole, to his regaling stories of firm lore.
Since he joined the Firm in 1978 as an articling student, Ray has been a valued and respected member of Walsh LLP, throughout its history of assisting Albertans with their legal questions and decisions. In his years with the firm, Ray has served as a Special Prosecutor for Justice Canada, has developed a practice in commercial law and matrimonial law, and has appeared in those causes in all levels of court in Alberta.
Ray is known by his colleagues both at Walsh LLP and outside the firm, as a man of integrity, honour, and dignity. In the practice of law, he strove unfailingly to achieve a level of respect for the parties and the process that earned him the admiration of lawyers and students at Walsh LLP, whom Ray enjoyed mentoring and with whom he shared the rich history and banter of Walsh LLP.
Walsh LLP thanks Ray Hunt for his many years of dedication, and wishes him the best of years in his retirement. To mark this special occasion, Walsh LLP is pledging a donation of $2,500 in Ray’s name, to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada (Calgary & Area Chapter), to help the community in which Ray practiced law and dedicated his many years of care and commitment.
