We collaborate with our clients to develop and implement strategies that reflect business risks and promote the best possible outcome.

Our proven ability to resolve disputes without recourse to trial allows our clients to avoid litigation and focus on their businesses instead.
Our litigation practice is complemented by the comprehensive legal expertise held by our lawyers who practice in the firm's dynamic and leading business law groups, including Infrastructure and Construction, Corporate / Commercial, Tax, Intellectual Property, Securities and Corporate Finance, Real Estate, and Energy and Resources.
We use our talents and advocacy skills and well-honed research to win cases or obtain favourable settlements in a wide range of business disputes and regulatory proceedings. We specialize in litigation matters related to the following areas:
Since the founding of Davis in 1892 by one of the pre-eminent trial lawyers of the day, Edward Davis, K.C., Davis has remained a distinguished litigation firm.
Our clients benefit from the strategic insight and skills of two former judges who practise in our firm. Our lawyers serve on a variety of legal advisory groups, corporate and not-for-profit Boards, legal education panels and frequently lecture at leading Canadian law schools and continuing legal education conferences.
Our Litigation Group continues to attract top law students, many of whom have clerked for Superior and Appellate Court Judges.
