Our retired partner John Whelan passed away on February 4, 2021 at the age of 79. John earned his B.S. from Fordham University and his J.D. from the University of Virginia Law School. John joined the firm as a partner in 1987, and practiced corporate and securities law. He was active in Canadian cross-border matters for over 40 years and worked on the first Regulation S/Rule 144A cross-border deal ever done out of Canada. John was an engaging story-teller, a very good lawyer and colleague, and we mourn his passing.
