1. Monthly Lawyer Profile – Curtis Darmohray

Why did you become a lawyer?

I have always been fascinated by business and the law.  While completing my Economics and Commerce degrees, I took some basic business law courses which I loved.  I consequently decided to pursue law with a focus on business, real estate and estate planning, and have been very happy with this decision.  I feel privileged to be able to assist people with what are typically the most important transactions in their lives - buying or selling their business or home, and ensuring for their family’s future – all of which makes for a busy and enjoyable practice!

6. CYA For Hosting BYOB - by Keri Grenier

You have just finished the big game and it’s time to sit back, relax and share some post-game highlights.  You pull-up a chair next to Big Foot and grab a cold one out of the cooler (ok, minus the Big Foot/Sasquatch from the Kokanee commercials, but you get the picture).   If you have played on an adult sports team, belonged to a club, or volunteered, chances are you have sat around to have a few beverages after the big game or meeting.  In many of these situations, the gathering is BYOB (bring your own booze) or there is a group fund and someone is in charge of bringing the cooler full of beverages.  In those instances, there’s usually no official host and no one is selling anything, so who, if anyone beyond the individual themselves, is on the hook if someone in the group drinks too much and bad things happen?
