Mr. Thomas started his career with a large law firm, specializing in corporate and commercial law. He left the big firm environment in 1994 with a vision to create a small firm that could better cater to the needs of employers and immigrants relocating to Vancouver from all over the world. Mr. Thomas merged his busy practice with MKS in 2014.
Mr. Thomas is currently on leave from the firm, having received a Governor in Council (federal cabinet) appointment to become Chairperson of the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal in Ottawa. His appointment expires in 2021.
