Hospitality – Liquor Liability, Social and Commercial Host Liability

Our firm is particularly well-regarded in the field of liquor liability defence. We currently act for several insurers who provide coverage on a program basis for bars, pubs, and restaurants. Particular expertise is available in the area of commercial liquor Liability as well as social host and “employer” host liability. We regularly publish and speak on this subject and our experience in this area allows us to take advantage of the standard of care distinctions between various classes of establishment.
In 2010, Lorne Folick, Michael Libby, and Paul Dawson co-authored a textbook entitled Liquor and Host Liability Law in Canada.
