Over the past 22 years our lawyers have acted in corporate commercial matters before a range of administrative tribunals, as well as private arbitration panels, all levels of trial and appeal courts in British Columbia and before the Supreme Court of Canada. Our lawyers are also skilled in alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as negotiation and mediation, and it is our practice to look for efficient, cost-effective, negotiated solutions for our clients' commercial disputes wherever possible.
