Kashuba named le­gal ‘Ris­ing Star’

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Kyle Smylie The Drumheller Mail

A Drumhel­lerite has been named one of the ris­ing stars in Canada’s le­gal pro­fes­sion for his work in cor­po­rate re­struc­tur­ing and in­sol­vency law.

Kyle Kashuba’s prac­tice with To­rys LLP in Cal­gary earned him the hon­our from Lex­pert Mag­a­zine, a lead­ing law mag­a­zine which names their Ris­ing Stars an­nu­ally.

Kashuba, formerly of Drumheller, was one of the coun­try’s lawyers to be named and was fea­tured in a pro­file by the mag­a­zine.

He fo­cuses on as­pects of cor­po­rate re­struc­tur­ing and in­sol­vency and also brings ex­pe­ri­ence in real es­tate, re­tail, and man­u­fac­tur­ing in­sol­ven- cies. In his first year part­ner­ship, he was ap­pointed as a coun­sel to the Court of Ap­peal of Al­berta in a com­plex in­sol­vency case, the mag­a­zine said. Kashuba also vol­un­teers his time with Cal­gary Le­gal Guid­ance, where he reg­u­larly ad­vises clients on a va­ri­ety of mat­ters and trains other lawyers on in­sol­vency law mat­ters. He has vol­un­teered with the John Howard So­ci­ety, Stu­dent Le­gal Ser­vices, and Pro Bono Stu­dents Canada. He serves as an ex­ec­u­tive mem­ber of the Cana­dian Bar As­so­ci­a­tion Bank­ruptcy, In­sol­vency, and Re­struc­tur­ing Sec­tion.

“I am re­ally proud of his ac­com­plish­ments, Kyle has re­ally per­se­vered,” his mother Mau­reen told the Mail, say­ing he reg­u­larly works 18 hour days “but still has enough left in the tank for cel­e­bra­tion with his friends.”
