“We are excited to promote these talented members of our firm to partnership. They each provide valuable legal advice to our clients helping them to achieve success. Congratulations to Cheryl, Evan, Rob and Warren on this well-deserved accomplishment,” said Co-Managing Partners, Mark Stacey and Bruce Reynolds.

Warren Godfrey focuses primarily on general business, real estate and entertainment disputes. Warren is a passionate advocate for his clients’ rights and has experience with diverse contractual and other general commercial disputes, corporate governance, shareholder disputes, injunctions, leaseholder disputes, employment agreements and wrongful dismissal disputes across a wide range of industries. He also has a focus in entertainment law and has worked on a variety of disputes in this area, including acting for production companies, individual artists, and media companies.

Warren has been involved in the successful resolution of many business disputes, either by way of dispute resolution or litigation and has appeared before the Federal Court, the Court of Appeal, the Supreme Court of British Columbia and the Provincial Court of British Columbia. He has also successfully represented clients who have matters at the Labour Relations Board, the Civil Resolution Tribunal and the Residential Tenancy Branch.

Cheryl Labiris works exclusively in the Construction and Infrastructure Practice Group and has a very broad and diverse practice acting for all members in the construction pyramid including owners, general contractors, subcontractors/suppliers, sureties, architects, engineers, designers, and consultants on a vast range of construction claims including claims for delay, disruption, prolongation, breach of contract, breach of trust, geotechnical claims, permits, licenses, and approvals, access to lands, COVID-19, negligent/fraudulent misrepresentation, and surety bond claims.

She has significant experience working on a variety of projects including large-scale public infrastructure projects including multi-billion-dollar light rail transit projects, mine remediations, power plants, and wind farms. Cheryl also has experience in complex construction litigation proceedings, arbitration proceedings, and mediation and negotiation processes.

Robert Moore‘s practice involves all aspects of construction litigation. He has also litigated diverse commercial, professional liability, and personal injury matters.

His varied experience allows him to assist in all manner of disputes. Rob’s familiarity with the Rules of Court and alternative dispute resolution options permit him to develop a unique litigation strategy for every client no matter how big or small the dispute. He is known for pragmatic problem solving in challenging situations while keeping his clients’ best interests and objectives top of mind.

Evan Rankin regularly acts for lawyers, directors, officers, and their companies in professional liability claims and shareholder disputes. As an experienced freedom of expression advocate, Evan has worked on human rights claims in both domestic and international forums.

A thorough, tough, and responsive litigator, Evan has appeared before all levels of court in Ontario, as well as before the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario and the Ontario Securities Commission. Before joining the firm, Evan articled at the Enforcement Branch of the Ontario Securities Commission, giving him special insight into a complex and growing area of litigation. He has since advised clients on the potential impact of securities laws to their businesses.
