Goldblatt Partners has a busy criminal law practice, defending cases at trial and appeal, and appearing in all levels of the Ontario courts and in the Supreme Court of Canada. Our criminal lawyers also act in extradition cases, national security certificate cases, quasi-criminal law matters such as proceeds of crime litigation, and provide opinions on complex legal issues to other lawyers, institutions and organizations.
We also provide advice and representation to our trade union clients and their members in police and child welfare investigations, and in relation to criminal charges connected to the workplace or to picket line disputes.
Our criminal law experts have argued many cases under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. They are also actively involved in the work of the Association in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted, the Criminal Lawyers Association and the Canadian Civil Liberties Association.
