Areas Of Expertise
Business Litigation & Dispute Resolution
Negotiating positive outcomes for your business
Our group of 15 lawyers focuses exclusively on litigation and dispute resolution. We have a wealth of experience with complex commercial litigation cases across a wide range of industries. We know how to get to the core issue, find the best options for you, and bring the right experts together. Our goal is to reach a successful resolution as quickly as possible so you can get back to your business.
We’ll help you choose the dispute resolution tactic that's right for your situation. That can include negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or trial as a last resort. We have extensive experience with mediation and the arbitration process and often use them to reach a settlement outside of court. If we use a mediator, we’ll choose one based on their strengths and your case. We also have strong, well-established connections with experts, including accountants, valuators, economists, and engineers.
In addition to mediation, arbitration, and litigation, we offer services in these areas:
- Contract interpretation and disputes
- Shareholder disputes
- Partnership disputes
- Actions for or against directors and officers
- Share valuation proceedings
- Defective products and consumer protection
Impressive trial experience
If a trial is needed, our group’s 10,000+ combined days in court and arbitration have given us the skill to respond quickly, appropriately, and decisively. We’ve appeared in all levels of court in Alberta, and have extensive experience with other administrative and regulatory bodies. We’ve successfully negotiated solutions in highly challenging situations, which is why our offers are taken more seriously by the opposition.
Lawyers who pick up the phone
You need a lawyer who takes the time to understand your needs and goals, and is active in the business community. Someone who is available to talk to you and will reply to emails quickly. We make sure you get that level of service throughout the process—which includes using our highly trained support staff—so nothing slips through the cracks.
Adding complicated legal jargon to an already stressful situation isn’t helpful. We’ll communicate with you in plain English and save the legal language for legal documents.
More economical litigation
We start out weighing costs against benefits and continue to do this at every step of the process. You’ll get estimates by phase, and benefit from our favourable hourly fee structure. Because we assign tasks to the right people at the right seniority and skill levels, you aren’t paying more unnecessarily.
