Appeals & Judicial Review
Appeals and judicial review are a specialized part of our practice. Few law firms have our appellate experience per capita at all appellate levels.
Clients who wish to appeal, or who must respond to an appeal, choose Goldblatt Partners because of our knowledge, strong research capabilities and skill. Our appeals team has experience in civil, administrative, criminal and all types of public law matters. We have argued cases before the Supreme Court of Canada, the Ontario Court of Appeal, the Divisional Court, and the Federal Courts. We have also represented clients in appeals before the British Columbia Court of Appeal and the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal.
Our appeals team is comprised of such senior appeal counsel as Howard Goldblatt, Marlys Edwardh, Steven Barrett, Cynthia Petersen and Peter Engelmann. Several other lawyers – Emma Phillips, Colleen Bauman, Kelly Doctor, and Louis Century – clerked for the Supreme Court of Canada prior to joining our firm.
Our litigators are assisted by the members of our highly skilled research group, who have extensive experience in preparing oral and written arguments in complex judicial reviews and appeals.
Our Ottawa office also provides Supreme Court of Canada agency services to other law firms. To find out about our SCC agency services, contact Colleen Bauman.
