Goldblatt Partners’ civil litigation group represents individuals, businesses, trade unions and professional organizations in all types of civil and commercial disputes.
Our civil litigators deal with complex issues in areas such as civil liability (product liability, bodily and psychological injuries, material damages and economic loss), business contracts, professional regulation and liability, defamation, commercial litigation and extraordinary remedies, disputes relating to successions, wrongful dismissal actions, and claims of discrimination, sexual harassment and breach of fiduciary duties. Class actions are also a significant part of the civil litigation practice.
We also have experience litigating claims against the Crown, particularly claims against police and prosecutors for negligence and wrongful convictions. Representing employees in employer restructurings and insolvencies and defending malpractice claims against lawyers being sued by their clients are also important aspects of our civil litigation practice.
Our civil litigators regularly appear in all levels of court, and before a wide range of administrative boards and tribunals. They are also skilful negotiators with a solid record of successful mediations, arbitrations and settlements before trial.
