Welcome to the firm, David!

David Butler has joined our firm as an articling student.  Welcome to the firm, David!

Former Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said “if you’re going to be a lawyer & just practice your profession, you have a skill—very much like a plumber. But if you want to be a true professional, you will do something outside yourself, something that makes life…better for people less fortunate…”

As an articling student, I plan to continue to learn and achieve greater heights that I can be proud of, that my family can be proud of and that Daniel & Partners LLP can be proud of. During the upcoming months, I will endeavor to make every moment count as I plan for my future legal career. 

I am a recent Master of Laws graduate from Cardozo School of Law in New York City where I received the Dean’s Merit Scholarship. My area of concentration was in media & entertainment law. In October I sat for the NY Bar exam.  

My academic background includes a Bachelor of Laws (LLB Hons) from the University of Kent in England where I achieved First-Class Honors. Subsequently, I obtained a Certificate of Qualification from The National Committee on Accreditation of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada. I also graduated from McGill University with a Bachelor of Arts (Economics) and a Master of Business, Entrepreneurship & Technology from the University of Waterloo. I was the recipient of the Jeff Mills Memorial Cup, an award recognizing outstanding academics, athletics, leadership, and community involvement. I am fluent in French and English.

Prior to entering law school, I successfully led start-ups from concept to financing to existence to survival to growth to success. I was featured in PROFIT magazine for launching an innovative, environmentally friendly Quebec-based start-up. I also played professional hockey in North America and Germany. 

Today, in my spare time, my favourite activities include attending performances at the Shaw Festival (pre-covid) and playing sponge puck hockey for Team Yellow in Niagara on the Lake’s shinny league where our team remains undefeated for more than a decade.
