Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Sometimes disputes cannot be resolved without outside help because the parties cannot see eye to eye, or because the problems are complicated and there is no easy answer.

JFK Law has a team of experienced litigators with extensive courtroom experience. Our focus is on trying to find a solution that achieves your goals in a cost-effective way and maintains healthy long term relationships.  This may mean reaching a negotiated solution, but in order to achieve that goal it is important to be prepared to go to court if negotiation is unsuccessful.

Our litigation team has argued cases in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Yukon Territory and all levels of the Federal Courts and the Supreme Court of Canada.  We have experience in a wide range of subject matters including:

  • aboriginal title and aboriginal rights;
  • judicial reviews of Crown approvals relating to resource development;
  • the duty to consult;
  • constitutional law;
  • land rights under the land title system;
  • contractual and commercial disputes;
  • disputes arising from First Nations governance and elections issues;
  • tax disputes and appeals;
  • employment disputes;
  • governance disputes;
  • trusts and estates issues; and
  • disputes regarding on-reserve property and certificates of possession.
