Davis LLP's Pablo Guzman was quoted in the September 6, 2013 edition of Lawyers Weekly in an article discussing a recent Québec Court of Appeal decision that has clarified a lonstanding point of dispute in Anton Piller orders. The court has ruled that litigants do not have automatic access rights to evidence seized through the execution of an Anton Piller order.

Pablo observes, "It's a very sound judgment that reminds us that an Anton Piller order is not meant to obtain evidence. An Anton Piller order is meant to freeze evidence, to protect rights and to protect it from being destroyed."
