The art of business is more complex than ever before. A globalized marketplace creates opportunities for growth, while technological innovation disrupts the status quo, and regulatory frameworks grow ever more labyrinth. In this complicated landscape, companies, partnerships, societies, directors, and professionals can all benefit from the counsel of Eyford Partners’ strategically-minded lawyers.

From our offices in Vancouver and Kelowna, the commercial litigation lawyers of Eyford Partners provide skilled advocacy services to clients, both nationally and internationally. We have provided tailored services to a range of clients, from established global businesses to governments to entrepreneurs operating locally.

Our approach begins with understanding your business, your goals, and the potential effect of this dispute on your enterprise and reputation. We recognize that alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration, is often the best route forward. Indeed, the term “alternative dispute resolution” is something of a misnomer, since, in the majority of cases, pursuing a solution outside of the courts is the most efficient method for resolving a dispute. Our team works closely with clients to develop bespoke strategies for resolving disputes—whether this is through negotiated settlement, arbitration and mediation, or injunctive relief.

Comprehensive Dispute Resolution Services

Our comprehensive dispute resolution services span a range of areas including:

In each of these areas, our lawyers draw from a depth of experience. While our goal is always to obtain a favourable resolution in an efficient manner, we are fully prepared to advocate for our clients’ best interests in court. We have appeared at every level of court in this province and our record of success speaks for itself.

With expertise in everything from insurance to professional regulation to defending clients against class action claims, our litigators are highly valued for their in-depth knowledge and legal excellence.

Our commercial litigation practice encompasses a range of matters, including:

  • Shareholder disputes
  • Contract disputes
  • Employee theft and fraud
  • Product liability
  • Defamation
  • Privacy
  • Vicarious liability claims
  • Injunctive relief
  • Employment law

In every matter, clients can rest assured knowing that our lawyers will provide the highest level of legal advice. We understand that drawn-out litigation can disrupt your business and cause real damage to your enterprise and reputation. We take every step to secure a timely, favourable resolution.
