Litigation is more than a legal issue for our clients — it can have a major impact on the future of their businesses. Our Litigation group is relentlessly focused on keeping budding disputes from becoming major crises.
From the outset, we use the full resources at our disposal to anticipate and shape resolutions, and when a negotiated resolution cannot be achieved, our early intervention helps to strengthen our ability to litigate the dispute to a successful conclusion.
Combining this focus with our experience in a wide range of complex commercial litigation, we regularly advise domestic and multinational clients on their most complex, sensitive and sophisticated commercial disputes.
For example, we defended a Canadian engineering company in a federal securities class action in Texas arising from the high-profile Bre-X gold scandal and also advised an international bank in federal court as it sought to collect a loan of more than US$100 million from the central bank of a foreign nation.
