David Cheifetz

I’m delighted to announce that David Cheifetz has joined Slaw as an occasional contributor. David is a partner at Bennet Best Burns LLP practising “civil litigation primarily in areas that involve the interests of property and casualty insurers and institutional clients.” A lawyer for nearly thirty years, he has worked primarily in litigation but also boasts a stint in the Legal Division of the Research Branch of the Library of Parliament. David has written a text, Apportionment of Fault in Tort, as well as a number of articles for legal journals. And — pièce de résistance — “he was the starting goaltender for Israel’s hockey team in Israel’s first international appearance in Johannesburg, South Africa, at the 1993 IIHF Group C World Championships.”

Welcome David.


  1. Thank you, Simon.

    I’m pleased to be be here and I hope I can contribute usefully.

    For those of you who might be wondering, I first met then not-yet-emeritus Professor F in the early 1970s when Osgoode Hall Law School was young (in its northern incarnation) and when the world was a far hairier (at least for some) place. From a quick look at an image of Simon on the web, the last is true enough for the both of us.


  2. Welcome aboard, David! I look forward to your postings. And I see you have already gotten started. Bravo!


  3. Welcome, David. What a fantastic bio!
