The Supreme Court of British Columbia is the province’s superior trial court. It can hear any type of case, civil or criminal. It hears most appeals from the Small Claims Court and appeals from arbitrations. A party may appeal a decision of the Supreme Court to the Court of Appeal.
Our lawyers have experience at all levels of the Court in a wide variety of civil litigation matters. We also assist clients in identifying and mitigating risks that could lead to new legal exposures. Our knowledge of our client’s business enables us to intervene effectively to avoid lengthy proceedings or to achieve cost-effective and innovative solutions outside the court system.
Litigation can be lengthy and costly. A good lawyer can help the parties narrow and focus on the real issues that need to be resolved and steer the litigation through the court system as quickly and as cost effectively as possible.
