Effective strategy requires clarity of purpose, flexible tactics and excellent execution. Fasken Martineau's Litigation & Dispute Resolution group will establish and deliver a strategy that is the product of your goals and business. As the complexity of the average dispute continues to grow, we can anticipate your needs, providing you with pragmatic strategic risk management advice and value for your money.

Our internationally-recognized team has litigated for over a century and in multiple jurisdictions worldwide. Our lawyers have won significant trials and appeals for multinational companies, small- and medium-sized enterprises, and public bodies in a variety of industries and fields. We have extensive experience in all aspects of corporate and commercial litigation, having represented clients as trial and appellate counsel in courts and before arbitral tribunals, at mediation and administrative tribunals.

However, litigation is just one of the tools in our arsenal—our lawyers have expertise in international and local arbitration, as well as other forms of alternative dispute resolution.

Using our legal project management tool called Waypoint, we focus on early case assessment and cost predictability to ensure the dispute resolution process is ultimately driven by your business goals and budget constraints. This collaborative process offers you a written strategy for your work, a budget and complementary technology, and an extranet information sharing platform. We have developed this tool over the past decade to match our management of litigation with the skills we see our clients exercise in the management of their business. As a complement to this tool, our litigation support team is invaluable in supporting and managing the growing number of cases involving electronic document discoveries.

Whatever the approach taken, our commitment is to serve your interests in a way that is dedicated, passionate and informed by all our experience and the best practices and technology drawn from across Canada and around the world. Our history and footprint provide the experience, confidence and reach to develop and execute the right strategy for your dispute resolution needs.
