Every day businesses face risk-management issues in an increasingly competitive and sophisticated environment. When problems arise, the best response is to seek advice and resolution as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
Enterprises across Canada entrust this process to our renowned Litigation team. The depth of our team and our seamless integration across offices and areas of expertise means we can respond swiftly and efficiently to disputes in the early stages through to the appellate level.
As advocates and advisors, we work closely with our clients to develop solutions that fit their business goals. We help achieve early settlement when that is the right thing to do. We guide clients to alternative dispute resolution methods to prevent lengthy litigation when appropriate. However, we are always prepared to go to trial and excel at managing complex, document-intensive, multi-party and multi-jurisdictional disputes.
Our litigators have in-depth trial and appellate experience and regularly appear before provincial and federal courts all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada, as well as before administrative tribunals.
We can handle litigation for any of our areas of expertise. In addition, we specialize in advocacy, broker/dealer liability, charter remedies, civil law and common law, commissions of inquiry, constitutional law, contract disputes, coroner's inquests, e-commerce, food and drug regulation, franchising, injunctions, judicial review, language legislation, libel, defamation and media, maritime and land boundary delimitations, mediation, medical malpractice and personal and injury claims, parliamentary committees and commissions, penal and disciplinary matters, realization on secured assets, seizures before and after judgment, shareholders' disputes and oppression remedies, and wrongful dismissals.
