Overview

We advocate for our clients through creative problem solving, negotiation, mediation, arbitration and litigation in all levels of court.

Our representation ideally commences before our clients even start their businesses so that we can help them avoid issues that may arise. Whether in business planning or dispute resolution, we advise on all forms of risk management and litigation services, including in the following areas:

  • Shareholder disputes, such as disputes concerning buyouts of other shareholders, unfair treatment of minority shareholder interests (oppression and derivative action lawsuits), and claims against companies, shareholders and directors
  • Business venture and partnership issues, including disputes between business partners over ownership, management and operations of the business
  • Corporate compliance and governance matters, including obligations owed to regulatory authorities, licensing authorities and to shareholders
  • Frauds committed by directors, officers and employees against the business or others involved in the business
  • Breaches of agreements, such as contracts for purchase and sale of land, equipment, other assets and businesses
  • Property disputes, such as claims involving the purchase, sale, operation and management of real property, including property damage, trespass/nuisance, commercial leasehold interests, rental properties and strata properties
  • Secured transaction matters, including mortgage foreclosures, personal property security agreements and disputes regarding priorities over assets
  • Intellectual property disputes involving confidentiality agreements, trade secrets, industrial designs, non-solicitation agreements, copyright, trademark, patents and other commercial information
  • Enforcing restrictive covenants that limit future employment, business opportunities, improper use of goodwill, business information or customer lists
  • Extraordinary commercial remedies, including obtaining court orders preventing other parties from harming business interests (injunctions), asset seizure and creditor protection
  • Collection of debts
  • Class actions involving claims for product liability, duties owed by regulatory or other government authorities and civil claims common to a large group of people
