Aubin Calvert is developing a general civil litigation practice with a focus on commercial and administrative law.
Aubin received her JD in 2016 from the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia. She completed summer articles at an international law firm in Vancouver. Before joining Hunter Litigation Chambers, Aubin served as a law clerk to the Right Honourable Chief Justice Richard Wagner of the Supreme Court of Canada.
Brent Olthuis and Aubin Calvert won an appeal challenging the issuance of an anti-suit injunction in the arbitral context. The judgment represents one of the first, if not the first, times an appellate court in Canada has addressed the topic. A copy of the reasons for decision can be found here.
Mark Oulton and Aubin Calvert were counsel for Teal Cedar Products Ltd. in successfully defending an appeal brought from an interlocutory decision dismissing an application to remove a defendant on the grounds that it lacked the capacity to be sued. The decision of the Court of Appeal is available here.
Claire Hunter, Q.C. and Ryan Androsoff were counsel to Thomas Fresh Inc., a major vegetable wholesaler, and Prokam Enterprises Ltd., a vegetable producer, in a successful appeal to the Farm Industry Review Board from decisions of the BC Vegetable Marketing Commission. In a decision following an 8-day hearing in the spring of 2018, the FIRB found that the Commission had exceeded its authority by purporting to set minimum prices for the sale of British Columbia potatoes into Alberta and Saskatchewan without complying with the requirements of the Statutory Instruments Act. The Hunter Litigation Chambers team that assisted with this hearing also included Aubin Calvert and co-op student Diana Sepulveda. The decision is available here.
We are pleased to welcome Aubin Calvert to the firm as an associate. Between 2016 and 2018 she served as a law clerk to Chief Justice Richard Wagner of the Supreme Court of Canada. Aubin was called to the Ontario Bar in 2017 and to the British Columbia Bar in 2018.
