The lawyers in McMillan’s Litigation Group employ a full range of ethical strategies, tactics and remedies on our clients’ behalf as plaintiffs or defendants in litigation. We represent clients across the entire spectrum of corporate, commercial and public law matters. Our team includes litigation, arbitration and dispute resolution practitioners operating at the top of their fields. This includes lawyers with training in common law and civil law systems, and fluency in multiple languages including both of Canada's official languages. We have extensive experience in domestic, cross-border, and international litigation, arbitration and mediation. Our litigation and arbitration lawyers are ready to pursue clients’ interests tenaciously before all levels of courts, regulators, commissions, administrative tribunals and arbitral panels. We argue judicial review applications and appeals of administrative decisions, provide advice on intellectual property issues, negotiate with tribunal officials, and advise on the law and prospective legislative changes. Not limited to representing private-sector clients, we also act on behalf of governmental bodies and statutory decision-makers, advising them on points of administrative law and legal strategies to defend their interests. Our lawyers are recognized for their creativity and effectiveness in bringing disputes to satisfactory conclusions, both inside and outside the courts. We are flexible and pragmatic, recognizing that in some circumstances the best path to a solution may be alternative dispute resolution such as a business solution, mediation or a creative settlement.
