With its strong and diverse economy, world-class infrastructure and financial services industry, Canada offers a wide range of opportunities to domestic and foreign investors in the construction, manufacturing, transportation, financial services and resources sectors.
Canada also has a mature and highly regulated insurance market, which continues to attract both leading global insurers and new entrants competing to keep pace with technological transformations and develop new product offerings.
We offer our clients expertise in all aspects of insurance defence and coverage, commercial and construction litigation, arbitration and mediation. We regularly represent directors and officers and their insurers at the negotiating table and before the courts and tribunals. Our lawyers have vast experience litigating disciplinary proceedings against a broad range of professionals as well as handling fraud, antitrust, anti-corruption and regulatory investigations.
We also regularly defend product liability and personal injury claims ranging from single party lawsuits to multi-jurisdictional class actions involving aircraft, automobiles and trains, to construction equipment and major consumer appliances. Clyde & Co lawyers can also assist with product recalls, both voluntary and mandated.
