Henry C. Wood, QC

Henry has practiced exclusively in civil litigation throughout his career. Over the past two decades, his emphasis has been increasingly upon administrative law - especially issues of professional regulation involving related investigations, disciplinary hearings and appellate work.

He was an Adjunct Professor for nearly 20 years at the Allard School of Law, University of British Columbia, where he taught courses in ‘Professional Ethics and Responsibility’ and ‘Trial and Appellate Advocacy’.

His undergraduate studies were at Glendon College, Toronto, followed by law at Osgoode Hall Law School. He had extensive experience with criminal law early in his career, representing both the defense and the Crown, and was retained as a Special Prosecutor for the Federal government and the B.C. Attorney General in cases involving commercial crime. He has appeared as counsel before all levels of court in British Columbia, the superior courts in Alberta and the Yukon, and the Supreme Court of Canada in addition to several administrative tribunals. He is frequently retained by lawyers as well as by the Law Society of British Columbia concerning disciplinary matters and has been hired for discrete matters by the Yukon Government, the Law Society of Alberta, Law Society of Yukon, the City of Coquitlam and the City of Vancouver. He was appointed Queen's Counsel in 2008.

Within the community, Henry has a longstanding interest in children’s learning difficulties, having been a past Chair of the Special Education Advisory Committee at Capilano University, founding President of a Chapter of the Learning Disabilities Association of B.C. in West Vancouver, and a former Director of both the Laurel House Society and The Laurel Foundation for people on the autism spectrum.
