TDS Names Boardroom in Memory of Former Partner, Robin Kersey

published 03/02/2021

The Partners of TDS are proud to name meeting room 6 on the 17th floor after our longtime partner, Robin Kersey.

Robin was a special person and had the gift of being able to put a smile on your face with his mere presence. He was a wonderful father, husband, partner and friend.  

His sense of humour was infectious. He cared deeply for the firm and for those of us in it and took on a formal leadership role within the firm for many decades. Even when not in a formal leadership position, Robin was nevertheless viewed as a thought leader and his views on all manner of things were sought out by many.

Robin was an extremely thoughtful person who was constantly thinking of ways to improve the firm, always guided by a sense of fairness.

Robin was a leading lawyer in the area of employment law and had a national reputation.

He was as loved outside the firm as he was in it. Robin made lasting friendships across the country with lawyers he met over the years and they looked forward to seeing him every year at national conferences where he was always the highlight of the event.

All partners, past and present, are valued. Each of those partners has provided, in their own way, valuable contributions to the firm.  However, it is recognized that certain partners have provided contributions that go above and beyond what is expected of a partner and have distinguished themselves with their exceptional contributions to the firm and/or the profession.  

Robin was one of those partners.  

Robin passed away tragically on February 27, 2020.  On this first anniversary of his death, it is only fitting that we remember Robin and memorialize our affection and admiration for him with the naming of a meeting room.
