Share Lawyers Pays A Fond Farewell To Volker Triebe

A Fond Farewell To Volker | Share Lawyers


Share Lawyers senior law clerk Volker Triebe is retiring. As a member of the team for nearly 20 years, he’s seen a lot of changes at the office. We sat down with Triebe to bid him a fond farewell and to talk about his tenure at the firm, and how he plans to spend his retirement.


You’ve been involved with Share Lawyers for many years. Can you tell us how you got started?

Since the mid 80s, I began my career with Share Lawyers doing real estate title searches and attending to real estate closings at various land registry offices. After the real estate market cooled in the 80s, I began freelancing as a process server, counting Share Lawyers as my most significant source of work. Sometime in the early 90s, I was offered an in-house position, which I accepted.

Over the years, what have you done at Share Lawyers?

Share Lawyers provided me with the opportunity to obtain my certificate as a paralegal, and I have been working as a law clerk since then, with increasing responsibility over the years. Preparing correspondences to adjusters, lawyers, preparing legal documents such as claims and motion records, as well as delegating tasks to other clerks and assistants.

What are some memorable moments from your time at Share Lawyers?

Some memorable moments are the things that included all staff. Company anniversary celebrations, I recall one celebration which included a bowling party, the holiday celebrations hosted by David and Wendy were always lovely; the walkathons were memorable. Most memorable is the people that I have worked for and with over all these years. I believe that it is the relationships that we build with those around us that is most important.

What are your plans for the future?

I want to watch the proverbial river flow; learn to actually play my guitars, spend more time on out-of-doors activities, do some volunteering; get into bread baking…such influence.

Thanks for answering our questions, Volker. We’re sad to see you go and wish you all the best for a happy retirement!
