Litigation Services

HTL&N’s Litigation Services Group provides advice and representation to clients involved in disputes of all kinds.

While we often act for clients before the Courts of British Columbia, our work is by no means limited to the courtroom.  We also strive to assist our clients to avoid contentious proceedings entirely by providing the advice long before disputes arise to allow them to structure their affairs in such a way that recognizes their business goals but minimizes the risks of real or perceived liability to others.  If a dispute does arise, we provide innovative dispute resolution services designed to generate solutions while minimizing the ever-increasing costs of litigation.  To that end, we represent clients in negotiations, mediations, arbitrations, and proceedings before administrative tribunals.  And when recourse to the courts is required, our experienced barristers are forceful, skilled advocates.

Our clients are as varied as our services: individuals, corporations, partnerships, insurance companies, local governments, Crown corporations, professional associations, and administrative bodies all regularly seek our litigation counsel.
