With offices in Vancouver and BC's capital city of Victoria, Janes Freedman Kyle (known colloquially as JFK Law) is a boutique focusing primarily on aboriginal and constitutional law matters. "They are a small firm of young and dynamic people who know exactly what they want to do and are sticking with that and doing a great job," offers a peer. "Even the senior partners there are relatively youthful and driven." Adding further dynamism to its bench, the firm recently lured Vancouver partner Timothy Dickson, an alumnus of Farris, to its bench in 2017. Dickson was lead counsel for the respondents in a case concerning a challenge by the Vancouver Aquarium to a by-law enacted by the Vancouver Parks Board banning the keeping of whales and dolphins in Vancouver's parks, and therefore at the Aquarium. The Aquarium is challenging the by-law on the basis of an alleged lack of statutory authority, as well as on grounds of procedural unfairness, vagueness and unjustifiable infringement of freedom of expression. The case has been heard but judgment is on reserve. Dickson has also been representing the Public Guardian and Trustee of British Columbia as lead counsel in long-running litigation concerning the Ministry of Children and Families' removal of a Métis girl from her foster parents and her placement for adoption with a family that includes her two full sisters. The foster parents and the girl's birth parents have litigated in a number of proceedings with the aim of setting the Ministry's decision aside. Dickson also acts for a plaintiff class of female flight attendants who seek remedies against an airline for breach of their employment contracts in failing to implement a sexual harassment policy.
