David Crerar is a partner at Borden Ladner Gervais. He practises in the area of civil and commercial litigation with a focus on medial law and defamation as well as other areas of business law. When he is up, he is up. And when he is down, he is down. And when he is only halfway up … well, one wonders. Harry Crerar is possibly the youngest contributor to the Advocate pages. He is the guy his father, David Crerar, tries to keep up with as they scale the peaks of this province. David Crossin, Q.C., is the past president of the Law Society. He graced our cover a year ago in the January 2016 issue and his star has been rising ever since. David practises commercial, criminal and administrative law at Sugden, McFee & Roos LLP. He is an avid motorcyclist. William G. Horton is a commercial arbitrator operating out of Toronto, Ontario. He was called to the bar of Ontario in 1976 after obtaining his LL.B. from Osgoode Hall. He is the former head of litigation at both McMillan LLP and Blakes LLP. He has been appointed tribunal chair, sole arbitrator and party nominee in over one hundred substantial cases involving nuclear facilities, telecom, satellite and wireless industry disputes, government privatization contracts and aircraft engines … to name only a few.

She holds a B.A. in English literature from UBC and spends her spare time playing soccer, softball and tennis. Anders Ourom is not merely a sole practitioner advising on the governance of societies, charities and other not-for-profit organizations, he is also an accomplished climber. Anders, if the Internet is to be believed, developed from a frail (and nerdy) boy to become one of the more seasoned mountaineer/climbers in Squamish who has schooled many people wanting to climb in the area. Gib van Ert enjoys writing on the reception of public international legal norms in Canadian law and has, in fact, written a book titled Using International Law in Canadian Courts (Toronto: Irwin, 2008). His biography A Long Time Ago: Growing Up With and Out of Star Wars (Vancouver: Soi-distant Press, 2012) details his lifelong love/hate relationship with the Star Wars franchise as a child, as a young man and as a father. He is on leave from Hunter Litigation Chambers and is the Executive Legal Officer of the Supreme Court of Canada.
