Our civil litigation lawyers are respected for the professional, tenacious, and assertive approach taken with files and are experienced in a wide variety of litigation matters and skilled in the resolution of complex problems.

Our lawyers work closely with our clients to understand the scope of their legal issues and to determine the most effective options for resolution. Whether we are serving a large company or an individual, and whether the matter is simple or complex, our Litigation Group strives to find practical solutions and to provide services that are professional, courteous and responsive.

The priority of our civil litigation lawyers is to enable our clients to achieve a successful resolution in a timely and cost-effective manner. Our lawyers’ extensive litigation experience allows us to represent our clients in any court or administrative proceeding. Our lawyers are also experienced in the use of alternative dispute resolution techniques including mediation and arbitration and employ strategies and processes at each stage of a client’s case to achieve a successful resolution. However, where the interests of our clients cannot be achieved through a negotiated resolution, our litigators are intelligent and effective advocates regardless of the forum – either with the courts, administrative bodies, or private arbitration.
