aperçu

Joan Young is a partner and senior litigator in the firm's Advocacy & Litigation Group, and the Competition & Antitrust Group. She also serves as a member of the firm's Professional Services Committee. Her practice emphasizes complex civil and commercial litigation, class actions, and administrative/regulatory hearings representing a wide range of clients and industries, such as automotive, mining, forestry, hospitality, manufacturing and government. Known as a highly skilled advocate with over 24 years of trial and appeal experience, Joan's extensive commercial litigation background includes product liability, class actions, conspiracy claims, tort law, contractual claims, employment law, administrative law and judicial review, government and public agency law, and aboriginal law.

Joan represents clients at all levels of courts in British Columbia, including civil jury trials, as well as appearing before multiple administrative tribunals and boards. She has extensive experience advising and defending private sector clients on the impact of public and administrative law decisions. As well, Joan has considerable experience representing public institutions in claims related to the operation of government programs. Joan is skilled in providing proactive advice to public and private sector business on how to prevent and resolve disputes. Using the strength of her courtroom experience, Joan provides guidance to her clients in successfully managing and reducing litigation risk in their business operations. She is equally experienced working with clients to settle claims in alternative dispute resolution and in mediation of claims outside of the court system. Joan's clients routinely express their trust and appreciation for her legal skills.

As one of British Columbia's most experienced professionals for public sector procurements, Joan has been appointed in over 15 high profile and multi-million dollar procurements. Joan is sought out to provide advice and oversight on the entire public procurement process from the initial development of the bid opportunity through to selection of preferred proponent.

Joan is a former Legal Advisor to the Office of the Premier, and Special Assistant to the Attorney General. She has significant public sector experience serving on both the policy and legal sides of the Ministry of Attorney General for eight years. Joan is currently the Chair of the Board of Directors of the Museum of Vancouver, and previously held appointments as a member of the Environmental Appeal Board, as Corporate Secretary to the Motor Carrier Commission and as a Director of the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research, Victoria Airport Authority, the Food Innovation Centre of B.C. and the Vancouver Island Multiple Sclerosis Society.
