Our firm has broad expertise in appellate advocacy, having acted as counsel in many appeals and on behalf of interveners, at the Supreme Court of Canada, the Federal Court of Appeal and various provincial appellate courts.

Our lawyers also have considerable experience in applications for leave to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada, and for applications for leave to intervene in the Supreme Court of Canada and other provincial appellate courts.

In addition, we regularly assist counsel in preparing for and conducting appeals, which can include both factum writing and advice concerning oral advocacy, as well as sessions before experienced appellate counsel and retired judges aimed at replicating the appellate court experience.

Our associate counsel, Michel Bastarache, brings considerable experience to our litigation files, and is particularly active in advising on our appellate work.
