The advocacy and litigation management skills of Stockwoods are recognized as at the forefront of practice. Modern commercial litigation requires not only superior advocacy, but a strategic approach to both legal issues and file management. Our skills enable us to act in these areas expertly and prudently.
We have acted in a wide variety of disputes between parties before the courts and in private arbitrations, including contract, property, negligence, tort, and corporate matters, as well as proceedings under the Bankruptcy Insolvency Act and the Companies Creditors Arrangement Act.
As part of our civil practice, our lawyers have often acted in important public law cases. Our expertise in regulatory and criminal litigation reinforces our skill in conducting these cases. It also allows us to manage our clients’ disputes so as to detect and minimize the impact that a civil case may have on other potential legal liabilities or proceedings.
Although we act in a wide variety of proceedings, in order to focus our strength on sophisticated commercial and public law litigation, we typically do not appear in family court or on personal injury matters.
