Former Conservative MP and Industry Minister James Moore is leaving the political life behind for good it seems. Moore has joined the Vancouver branch of Dentons, an international law firm with offices in Berlin, Brussels, Istanbul and London, among many other cities.
Moore will be providing strategic advice to clients locally and internationally.
“James’ knowledge of our local business community and opportunities, as well as his experience on an international stage, make him an ideal addition to our team,” said Lori Mathison, Managing Partner at Dentons’ Vancouver office in a release.
Moore is best known for being the youngest elected MP in B.C.’s history. At just 24, Moore was elected to the Port Moody-Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam riding in 2000. He was re-elected in 2011, which made him the first five-term MP in his community in Canadian history.
In a statement released in June of this year, Moore said he was leaving politics after receiving some “difficult news” about the health of his son, who has a medical condition. Moore said he wanted to be closer to his family.
