Dana Schindelka of Davis LLP Calgary Selected as One of the Lexpert(R) Rising Stars: Leading Lawyers Under 40



    CALGARY, Nov. 22 /CNW/ - Dana Schindelka, a litigation lawyer in the
Calgary office of Davis LLP, was announced as one of the Lexpert(R) Rising
Stars: Leading Lawyers Under 40 at a gala event in Toronto last night. A total
of 45 in-house and private lawyers were chosen as Rising Stars from a pool of
hundreds of Canadian nominees. Finalists were selected by an advisory board of
30 lawyers who lead some of Canada's largest law firms and corporations.
    With a practice tending towards that of the classical advocate,
Mr. Schindelka is at home in civil cases of all kinds, constitutional cases,
and professional discipline cases for the legal and medical professions. He
has successfully represented numerous oil and gas companies, insurance
companies, other large corporations, First Nations bands, franchisors, and
individuals. The first time he gowned, he appeared successfully at the Supreme
Court of Canada, and his practice has taken him to all levels of court in
Alberta and Saskatchewan. He has also appeared before many boards and
arbitration panels.
    The rapid growth of the firm's Calgary litigation department has been
helped by Mr. Schindelka's vision, planning and effort. He moved to Alberta to
join Davis and was the first and only litigator in the early days of the Davis
Calgary office.
    Mr. Schindelka volunteers for many associations and supports his fellow
lawyers in need. In 2006, he became the first recipient of the Canadian Bar
Association Alberta Branch Volunteer Recognition Award. He is a director of
the Alberta Lawyers Assistance Society, Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers in
Saskatchewan, and a Director of the Canadian Bar Association Legal Profession
Assistance Conference.
    Mr. Schindelka is called to the Bar in Alberta and Saskatchewan and holds
an LL.B. from Dalhousie Law School and a B.A. from the University of Regina.
