Public law and civil litigation in Ottawa, Vancouver and beyond.
We have experience in a wide variety of commercial matters including shareholder disputes, fraud claims, breaches of contract, professional regulatory matters, and complaints against public bodies.
We frequently act in cases raising constitutional issues or other questions concerning the limits of governmental power. We have acted for charities, civil rights organizations and governments. Our counsel have served as amicus curiae (friend of the court) in national security proceedings.
We handle private law matters including disputes arising from wills and powers of attorney, real estate transactions, and other land law issues such as trespass, boundary disputes, adverse possession and site contamination.
Supreme Court advisory
We frequently advise parties on matters before the Supreme Court of Canada. All of our counsel are former Supreme Court of Canada law clerks. Gib van Ert is a member of the Supreme Court Advocacy Institute.
