Any commercial activity carries a risk of legal complication and the stakes may be as high as your company’s survival. Burns Fitzpatrick practices extensively in commercial litigation. We help our clients resolve issues in all areas of business, including but not limited to shareholder disputes, breach of contract, creditor’s remedies, negligence, fraud, and insolvency.
We provide effective legal counsel no matter who you are or which side you’re on. We represent clients ranging from institutions such as banks and insurers to small and mid-sized corporations, trustees, societies, owner-operators, family-owned businesses, and individuals. We have acted at every level of court, and also engage in various dispute resolution processes such as mediation and arbitration. Some of our litigators are qualified as arbitrators and are members of the British Columbia Arbitration and Mediation Institute (BCAMI).
We are adept at solving our clients’ problems in a cost-efficient and practical way. We take a highly personalized approach to litigation and tailor our strategies to meet our clients’ needs and expectations throughout the litigation process. Our litigators know that no discipline is self-contained: they have the breadth of experience and knowledge to anticipate and solve problems that may arise due to the intersection of commercial litigation with other areas of law. At the same time, we achieve efficiency by ensuring that the right work is done by the right member of the team.
