We understand that disputes draw time, money and energy away from the core focus of business and often present other risks, including reputational. Blakes litigators develop strategies that consider our clients’ strategic imperatives and the commercial realities. Before we vigorously advocate for you in the courtroom or resolve disputes at the negotiating table, we listen to your needs and work together to define success. Then we focus on achieving it.
Our national team has an exceptional track record litigating all kinds of commercial disputes, including litigation relating to mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and strategic alliances, outsourcing and licensing agreements, procurement arrangements, supply chain and distribution issues, insurance, and other contractual disputes.
At every stage, we focus on our client’s objectives ― from fact-finding and risk evaluation, through strategic advancement or defence of litigation, to final determination or resolution. Our lawyers are highly experienced at the trial and appellate levels in court, at the negotiating table, and before tribunals and government agencies. Clients benefit from our extensive experience in commercial arbitration and mediation, as we explore every opportunity to resolve disputes by the best available means.
Working closely with our inSource team, we use advanced legal technology tools to efficiently handle large, document intensive cases, e-discovery and investigations. This allows Blakes litigators to work seamlessly with our reviewers in house to both produce the highest quality work and advance our clients’ cases with alacrity.
Whatever the issue, our litigators are prepared to get into court or other forums quickly and assertively to ensure that our clients' interests are fully protected.
