Civil litigation can include small disputes between individuals, neighbours and (former) friends. It can also include large corporations who are embroiled in a shareholder or partnership dispute that has a direct impact on hundreds of employees and the long-term sustainability of the corporation. The issues are usually similar whether the litigant is an individual or a large corporation. Our firm carefully analyses the issues prior to initiating a formal Statement of Claim at the Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench. We provide our clients with a risk assessment based on the individual facts of each case. The new Court of Queen’s Bench rules that allow for an Expedited Action can assist in obtaining earlier trial dates. In appropriate cases, we refer our civil litigation to Judicially Assisted Dispute Resolution (JADR) for resolution.
