Conflict happens — within large organizations, small private companies and in the lives of individuals. Our role is to secure a just result for you or your organization, whether the complaint has been made by or against you. Persuasive, cost-effective and timely advocacy is the key to enforcing your legal rights, and to achieving the best business solutions. The Aird & Berlis LLP Litigation Group provides you with the most leverage possible and employs that leverage to move events to your desired result.

Acting in all forms of litigation — mediation and alternate dispute resolution, trials, appeals, arbitration panels and administrative tribunals — our litigators have a wealth of experience in efficiently and aggressively representing clients involved in business disputes of all types. Many of our clients operate in regulated industries and require specialized representation before federal and provincial tribunals, including Investment Canada, the Ontario Energy Board, the Ontario Securities Commission, the Competition Tribunal, the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board, the Labour Relations Board, the Human Rights Commission, and the Ontario Municipal Board, as well as the Federal Court of Canada, Federal Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.
