Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Going to court can be time consuming and costly. We work tirelessly to find the best possible solutions for contentious issues outside of waiting to go before a judge.

Despite challenges along the way, our experience in uncovering alternative dispute mechanisms and creative settlement solutions can help save you time and money. When it’s necessary, we represent clients in all courts from small claims to the Supreme Court of Canada. We have jurisdiction in Alberta, mediations, arbitrations, public inquiries, disciplinary tribunals, and in occupational health and safety prosecutions.

Bishop & McKenzie acts on behalf of families, individuals, businesses and institutional clients. Our corporate clients range from large, international corporations and financial institutions—including insurance companies—to small, independent businesses including doctors, dentists, accountants, lawyers and engineers. In high-profile litigation, we train and prepare our clients for media interviews and press releases.

We assist our clients in a variety of areas including:

  • Commercial and contract disputes
  • Construction litigation and builders’ lien matters
  • Construction site mishaps
  • Copyright, patent and trademark protection and enforcement
  • Employment law, including wrongful dismissal
  • Falls on unsafe property
  • Family and matrimonial disputes
  • Landlord and tenant disputes
  • Medical malpractice
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Pedestrian injuries
  • Products liability cases
  • Security enforcement
  • Serious personal injury and wrongful death
  • Tax litigation
  • Unsafe consumer products
