Many of the rules and laws governing business and professional activities are not subject to enforcement through the courts but are regulated through administrative tribunals.
Practising before administrative tribunals requires knowledge of the particular concepts and procedural requirements that infuse their proceedings.
Farris litigators have argued cases before the widest range of administrative tribunals including the British Columbia Securities Commission, the British Columbia Utilities Commission, the Labour Relations Board, the Workers Compensation Board, the Property Assessment Appeal Board, the Information and Privacy Commissioner, and the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal. Our litigators are also experienced in a broad range of judicial review proceedings, challenging or defending the decisions of administrative agencies before the courts.
Farris lawyers have also advised and represented administrative and professional regulatory agencies, including the Provincial Agricultural Land Commission and the Institute of Chartered Accountants.
