Chrys Pappas, K.C.


With deep regret, we announce that our friend and partner, Chrys Pappas, K.C., has passed away at the age of 79. Chrys received his Call to the Manitoba Bar in 1968, and when he joined Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP (TDS) in 1989 as a Partner he had already developed the reputation as being one of our province’s most distinguished corporate and commercial lawyers.

Chrys was appointed both a Life Bencher of The Law Society of Manitoba and a Life Member of the Council of the Manitoba Bar Association. He was repeatedly recognized nationally by Lexpert and Best Lawyers in the areas of Corporate and Commercial Law, Banking and Finance Law, and Real Estate Law.

Chrys was also active in his community. He was a Director of Special Olympics Manitoba and the Winnipeg Football Club, as well as a past Chair of the Board of Governors of Balmoral Hall School and a Regent of The University of Winnipeg.

Chrys was kind and generous – one of the firm’s biggest advocates, who championed his partners, associates and colleagues with pride as often as he could. 

The Partners, Associates, Students and Staff of TDS extend our sincere condolences to the Pappas family.
