We maintain an active practice in these matters before the Federal Courts, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, and the relevant regulatory bodies. Stockwoods has also successfully represented clients in hearings before the Advertising Standards Council of Canada in matters arising from the telecommunications and food industries.

We prepare and present expert evidence on the scientific and economic aspects of these cases, as well as the issues relating to consumer and audience perception of the advertisements themselves.

Our experience includes seeking or responding to requests for injunctive relief in various commercial disputes. For example, we acted in a case where a client in the pharmaceutical industry sought injunctive relief to prevent false public claims about its product. We have also represented clients in the energy industry, seeking injunctive relief and compensatory damages for unfair marketing practices under the Competition Act and Trade-Marks Act.

In addition, we have experience in disputes pertaining to broadcasters and their affiliates, including advertising revenues.
