With a long history serving as counsel on precedent-setting appeals, we bring skilled advocacy and court-savvy counsel to appellate disputes.


We offer clients sophisticated advice on appellate strategy, drawn from decades of experience representing clients in appeals at the Supreme Court of Canada and at courts of appeal across the country. We know the dynamics at play before the appellate courts and understand the unique role of the appellate lawyer to make the arguments—in the brief and in court—through persuasive advocacy and a narrative focused on what matters to the court. Our cases regularly make new law across a wide range of topics and practice areas.

We work with clients at any stage of appeal, often in conjunction with trial counsel, to advise on, draft and argue appeals. In addition to acting on corporate, insurance, class actions, securities, intellectual property and employment cases, we have extensive knowledge in constitutional and public law matters.
