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."
