Litigation General Commercial Client: Band 1, Chambers Canada: Canada’s Leading Lawyers for Business 2023

Blakes has one of the largest commercial litigation practices in Canada, with an extraordinary depth of local industry knowledge, practice expertise and litigation experience. We understand that disputes drain time, money and energy away from the core focus of business and often present other risks, including reputational risks. Blakes litigators develop strategies that consider our clients’ strategic imperatives and the commercial realities.

Our national team has an exceptional track record litigating all kinds of commercial disputes, including those relating to mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and strategic alliances, shareholder issues, directors and officers liability, commercial fraud and asset recovery, outsourcing and licensing agreements, procurement arrangements, construction, supply chain and distribution issues, insurance, and other contractual disputes.

At every stage, we focus on our client’s objectives ― from fact-finding and risk evaluation, through strategic advancement or defence of litigation, to final determination or resolution. Our lawyers are highly experienced at the trial and appellate levels in court, at the negotiating table, and before tribunals and government agencies. Clients benefit from our extensive experience in commercial arbitration and mediation, as we explore every opportunity to resolve disputes by the best available means.

Working closely with our inSource team, we use advanced legal technology tools to efficiently handle large, document-intensive cases, e-discovery and investigations. This allows Blakes litigators to work seamlessly with our reviewers in-house to produce the highest quality work and advance our clients’ cases.

Our commercial litigators have a well-deserved reputation for efficient, effective and practical advice in helping clients assess risk and address their disputes.

One of the key reasons we prefer to work with Blakes is because of the commercial awareness and practical advice.
