Human rights issues are sensitive and can be incredibly disruptive to an organization. They also often require creative, out-of-the-box solutions. We regularly act for both corporations and not-for-profits in the defence of human rights claims.
Our solid foundation in insurance, combined with our expertise in human rights law and procedure, make us uniquely suited to defend these claims.
We act for societies and businesses in various sectors throughout BC and the Yukon. Our lawyers are experienced in defending claims before the BC Human Rights Tribunal, Yukon Human Rights Commission and the Canadian Human Rights Commission.
We are also particularly experienced and trained in mediation.
Our team has extensive experience defending discrimination and harassment claims in all contexts, including employment, tenancy and housing, and the provision of services.
We pride ourselves on providing timely and strategic advice, and strive to find cost-effective solutions that are commensurate with risk.
Our lawyers are actively involved in a number of industry associations including:
- Canadian Bar Association – Insurance Law Section
- Canadian Defence Lawyers
- Defence Research Institute
