Happy Retirement, Deb!

December 2021

Roper Greyell’s long-time research paralegal, Deborah Hall, will be retiring from the firm as of December 31, 2021.

Deborah first came into the realm of what would become Roper Greyell in 1992, as a temporary legal assistant for a lawyer in Tom Roper’s labour and employment group at a national firm. Deborah sat next to Tom’s assistant, and when Tom’s assistant went away, Deborah was called back to cover for them.

In September 1993, Deborah completed her paralegal certificate and training and joined Tom again in the labour group. Deborah learned the ins and outs of labour law working with Tom and via receiving paper copies of leading cases from the Labour Relations Board, which she would summarize and send out to the firm. Deborah found her niche with labour law and thoroughly enjoyed it from the start. The rest is history!

Deborah’s favourite memory from her career have been the learning opportunities throughout the years – she enjoys being able to give quick answers, and has also enjoyed learning about things such as contempt proceedings and strike work. Deborah has also enjoyed watching the career growth of the firm’s lawyers, including those who started at the firm as summer students and returned for articles, eventually becoming associates and partners!

Deborah says that the greatest thing about Roper Greyell, and the thing she will miss the most, are the people, and the time she has been fortunate to spend with them. Deborah is looking forward to dedicating time to her creative endeavours, including creating art, practicing yoga, and walking along the Seawall.

Congratulations on an incredible career, Deborah, and all the very best in your retirement, from all of us at Roper Greyell.
