Administrative history

Corning and Chipman was founded in 1885 by barristers Thomas E. Corning and Lewis Chipman, in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. They acted as agents for the London and Lancashire Life Assurance Company and the Liverpool-based Imperial Merchant Service Guild. Thomas Corning was the Yarmouth County recorder, treasurer and solicitor, as well as MLA for Yarmouth from 1882-1886. Lewis Chipman read law with Corning before the firm was created, which he left in 1909 to join Chipman and Sanderson.
