To be successful in your next appeal, you need experienced advocates who know their way around Canada’s appellate courts, and who are known by them. This is what we offer at Blakes.
With a proven track record in the Supreme Court of Canada and in the federal and provincial appeal courts, our lawyers have the skills and experience to achieve your desired outcome. Many of Canada’s largest businesses rely on Blakes to defend their reputations and revenues in court, and we regularly lead precedent-setting appeals that shape our country.
With one of the largest Litigation & Dispute Resolution practices in Canada and top-tier litigators in Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver and Montréal, we offer an extraordinary depth of local knowledge and disputes expertise.
Many of our lawyers have served as law clerks to the judges of the Supreme Court of Canada and various appellate courts, providing our clients with valuable insight. Our lawyers include two past presidents of The Advocates’ Society, a former chair of the Canadian Bar Association’s Supreme Court of Canada Liaison Committee, and faculty on the Supreme Court Advocacy Institute.
Every year we also organize and host the Wilson Moot, a national constitutional appeal moot that attracts the best law students from across the country and to which Supreme Court and other appellate judges volunteer their time to teach students about appellate advocacy.
We focus all this experience on you and your appeal. We build an effective strategy that takes into account your organization, industry, key objectives and risk tolerance. Appeals are a chess game, but we remember that the game belongs to you and we help you win it.
