Unauthorized Practitioner

Anderson, Walter

On April 23, 2015, Madam Justice Griffin granted an order prohibiting Walter Anderson, of Surrey, BC, from commencing, prosecuting or defending proceedings in any court, unless representing himself as an individual party to a proceeding, acting without counsel, solely on his own behalf. In 2013 and 2014, Anderson prosecuted proceedings on behalf of others in the Supreme Court without the expectation of a fee, gain or reward. In one proceeding, the court denied Anderson audience, finding his prosecution of the matter inappropriate and a contrary to the Legal Profession Act. The order does not apply when Anderson commences, prosecutes or defends a proceeding on behalf of a company, provided that he is a registered officer or director of that company and such acts are purely incidental to his appointment.
