We’re here to solve problems that matter so we can help our clients succeed. A crucial way we do this is by bringing one of the largest and most experienced litigation groups in Western Canada to bear for clients. Our clients benefit from the combined experience of lawyers who have had practiced in civil litigation and employment litigation for decades. And while we have the resources to address whatever may be needed on a file, we also staff our files efficiently. We offer practical employment solutions to employers when they are needed, because our goal is to make the process of employment litigation as uncomplicated as possible.

Our clients can always count on our legal capabilities, as well as our real-world business experience and practicality. We have extensive experience pursuing matters through arbitration or trial and have established a reputation for aggressively and thoroughly pursuing our clients’ interests. We take litigation seriously and work hard to provide clear guidance and sensible solutions.
Our Employment Litigation group is known for its depth and our significant number of senior practitioners. We handle employment litigation no matter the size or complexity, including wrongful dismissal actions, human rights complaints, employment standards complaints, restrictive covenant and wrongful competition actions, class actions, and harassment and discrimination complaints.

We have represented clients in all types of businesses and organizations across a wide range of industries, including construction, energy, retail, grocery, manufacturing, healthcare, education, and all levels of government.
