In Memoriam: Richard B. Costello,QC (1951 - 2012)
March 13, 2012
It is with great sadness that McInnes Cooper advises of the loss of our friend and colleague Richard B. Costello, QC. Rick passed away on March 12, 2012, surrounded by his family after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
Rick was a highly-regarded Partner in the Saint John Office, having served clients, collaborated with colleagues, mentored junior lawyers and friends all throughout the Firm’s Litigation Practice. He served as a defence counsel for leading insurers throughout the region and his opinion and counsel was highly sought and respected.
Rick also served his community and the profession and was a former councillor in the Town of Rothesay and served various terms on the council of the Law Society of New Brunswick.
Rick was invited and became a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers an accomplishment of which he was very proud. He actively participated in that organization.
Rick has made many contributions to his country, his province and his profession. We have been privileged to know him and to work with him. Rick has positively influenced the growth and development of McInnes Cooper and the careers of many lawyers at McInnes Cooper and beyond.
He always challenged us to be our best.
We will truly miss him.
