Arbitration is a well-recognized means of resolving disputes.
Farris lawyers can help if you are involved in arbitration or deciding to include an arbitration clause in your commercial contracts. Our lawyers frequently advise on and draft arbitration agreements, customizing them to the transactions and business relationships involved.
Farris litigators are experienced in acting as counsel for parties in arbitrations of all sizes. We conduct arbitrations under a variety of rules and on a range of topics, including corporate reorganizations, earn outs, construction claims, product defects, real estate developments, finders’ fees, rent reviews, commercial contracts, and wrongful dismissal claims. Our litigators have represented parties in international trade arbitrations, including the softwood lumber dispute between Canada and the United States. Farris labour lawyers regularly conduct collective agreement arbitrations.
We have acted in all levels of court in proceedings arising out of arbitration agreements and arbitration awards, including applications to stay court proceedings in favour of arbitration, challenges to arbitration awards, and applications to enforce arbitration awards.
Several Farris lawyers are also available to serve as arbitrators. Farris lawyers are active in the arbitration community and regularly write and present on arbitration-related topics.
