Public Law
With a long history advising clients in the public and private sectors, we understand how to navigate public law disputes.


Our skilled team offers strategic advocacy, partnering with clients in the private and public sectors. We act for and opposite governmental authorities, and our clients include businesses, public interest groups, as well as boards and tribunals. We bring years of experience advocating for clients on their public and regulatory law issues, including judicial reviews and appeals from boards, commissions and tribunals, and contentious matters before the Ontario Securities Commission, the Competition Tribunal and the Ontario Energy Board.

We also regularly act in all levels of court in cases under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and cases involving federalism issues. Our lawyers are seasoned appellate litigators and have appeared in the Supreme Court of Canada on constitutional issues, including on search and seizure of business records, defamation and freedom of expression.
