Another month has flown by, and as usual our clients have busy with conferences, blogging, training and more. Here’s a look at what they were up to in April:
- On Fraser Valley firm Waterstone Law‘s BC Injury Lawyers Blog, Kim Briscoe describes how ICBC’s recent accusations of fraud backfired on them, and questions the insurer’s use of premiums to promote its “Hall of Shame”.
- Ontario divorce law firm Russell Alexander Family Lawyers congratulated associate Adam Borer on the completion of his Level 1 Collaborative Practice training. The firm was also excited to attend the LSUC’s Annual Family Law Summit.
- Ontario construction and condo law firm Robson Carpenter changed it up a bit on their blog this month, with an examination of sexism in legal services. Craig Robson reflects on discrimination his former and current female colleagues have endured and the everyday sexism they face in their work.
- At Canadian tax law firm Thorsteinssons, Vancouver associate Jennifer Flood shared Justice Marshall Rothstein’s recent remarks at a CBA Tax Section meeting, which included tips on obtaining leave to appeal to the SCC on a tax issue, and the interaction between complex tax matters and generalist courts.
- Rhode Island elder attorney Mark Heffner shared slides from his recent presentation at the Caregiver’s Journey conference, and noted an upcoming seminar on Medicaid and Medicare planning in which he’ll be speaking. His firm’s blog also called attention to the rampant IRS scam affecting local seniors.
- BC Interior firm Pushor Mitchell maintained its track record of frequent blog posts, including David Brown‘s thought-provoking pair of posts on whether the restaurant industry discriminates against women — and also men?
- Ontario injury firm Van Dyke Law Office wondered whether workers can count on WSIB for compensation when they are injured at work, and looked at how “hot tubbing” could bring fairness to personal injury claims (it’s not what it sounds like!)
- Product injury firm Hissey Kientz posted news about research and lawsuits related to a powerful class of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones (FQLs), which have been linked to serious adverse effects including permanent neuropathy and tendon damage.
- Arizona criminal defense attorney Lawrence Koplow announced he’d be speaking at an upcoming AACJ DUI seminar. Koplow joins other top Arizona attorneys in sharing techniques and tactics for defending DUI charges.
- On their Illoominate blog, the folks at Loom Analytics shared what they learned at the #LexTech16 conference, and showed how their analytics software can answer the question of “Do civil trials afford better outcomes for survivors of sexual assault?“
- Owen Bird lawyer Dan Coles is always writing about something interesting at his BC-based Alcohol & Advocacy blog; this month was no exception with his fascinating post on the “Top 10 Liquor Laws from 1921“
That’s it for this month; we’ll be back at the end of May with more new & notables.
