We act as consultants to many companies in claims brought before provincial Courts, assisting local attorneys.
The cases we handle involve litigation over hazardous waste, toxic substances, contaminated property disputes, air and water issues, nuisance, enforcement and permitting.
Our deep familiarity with environmental regulation, as well as with technical and engineering services (involving equipment, sampling techniques, modeling, measurements, chemical analysis, etc.), enables us to frame effective approaches to litigation. Our relationship with highly-credentialed experts in numerous medical and technical disciplines (such as toxicology, hydrogeology, geology, meteorology, topography, etc.) has allowed us to successfully challenge plaintiffs’ expert evidence. We have also achieved the dismissal of many frivolous lawsuits before trial.
The clients represented by our Litigation Department operate in the most diverse industry fields, including, inter-alia, chemical, petrochemical, oil & gas, mining, foodstuffs, metal, pulp, paper, waste processing, agribusiness and energy.
