Dispute Resolution

If you’re confronted with a bet-the-company lawsuit or navigating a high-stakes contested merger, losing isn’t an option. We marshal the right team to strategize, fight and win your battle – in the courtroom or behind closed doors – and help keep your business plans on target.

Whatever your litigation challenge, we understand what you’re up against and how seriously the issues can affect your business. Backed by seasoned perspective and a well-established winning track record, we tailor a team with precisely the right expertise and experience to tackle the task at hand. And then we work seamlessly with your organization – and, if called for, with counsel elsewhere in Canada and internationally – to achieve the best possible resolution.

We regularly take cases to trial and to appellate courts across the country, including provincial courts of appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada. Spanning industries, sectors and borders, we win for our clients in every level of court, as well as in administrative tribunals and before domestic and international arbitral panels. Our trial-tested lawyers have one goal in mind: your success.
