  • Notes 
    • CLEMENT & CLEMENT, Barristers, Solicitors, etc., Office Metcalf Block, King St. Berlin, Ont.

      Mr. E. P. Clement, K.C., the senior member of this firm has been a resident of Berlin since 1875 when as a young law student he entered the office of Mr.Ward H. Bowlby, K.C., County Crown Attorney. Upon his admission to the bar a few months later he entered into partnership with Mr. Bowlby under the firm name of Bowlby & Clement and that firm enjoyed during all its existence a large and successful practice.

      Upon Mr. Bowlby's retirement from active practice in 1902 Mr. E. P. Clement began practice alone but finding the work too heavy for him he took into partnership his nephew, Mr. E. W. Clement, and that partnership still continues. On the first day of June 1912 an addition was made to the firm, Mr. William P. Clement, B.A. L. L. B., a son of Mr. E. P. Clement, who has just been called to the Bar, entering the firm which continues to do business under the same firm name.

      Mr. E. P. Clement during those years held retainers from a great many of the Banks, Insurance Companies and other corporations in this town and Province, including the Solicitorship for the Town of Berlin, all of which he had to drop when in April, 1907, he was appointed a Judge at Windsor. Prior to that time Mr. Clement had been a Director for a great many years of the Mutual Life Assurance Co. of Canada, and after officiating as Judge for a few months, he was offered the Vice-Presidency of that Company which offer he accepted.

      He accordingly resigned his Judgeship and resumed the practice of law here. Shortly after, the death of Mr. Melvin, (who was then President of the Insurance Company,) resulted in the appointment of Mr. Clement as President, which position he still holds, and though the duties of that office make considerable demands upon his time, lie still takes a foremost part in the legal work and life of this County.

      Mr. E.. W. Clements is a native of Hamilton but resided for the greater part of his life in Sarnia where he commenced the study of law with Mr. (now the Honourable) W. J. Hanna, in 1896, with whom he remained until he came to the Town of Berlin in 1903. Since that time besides making a name for himself in legal affairs, he has become well known in the public life of the Town, having served in the Town Council for a number of years and having taken an active part in every thing that concerns the public life and well being of the community.

      Mr. William P. Clement, the youngest addition to this firm is a graduate in Arts and Law of Toronto University. He has recently been called to the Bar after a three year's course at Osgoode Hall, and is, therefore, now well equipped for the practice of his chosen profession. He commences his legal career in the same year that Berlin enters on its cityhood, and, while modest in making comparisons, is confident of a sucessfuI future for the city.1a
