Civil Litigation

The lawyers of Goodwin & Mark LLP have served the needs of businesses and individuals involved in civil litigation in New Westminster and Greater Vancouver since 1953. Our lawyers approach every legal matter with keen attention to detail and always in preparation for trial. We help our clients understand the laws that govern their disputes, as well as their options for effective resolution.

We assist clients in pursuing and defending their cases in front of judges in a variety of civil litigation matters, including:

  • Partnership and shareholder disputes, including breach of contract
  • Creditors’ remedies and business disputes
  • Employment disputes
  • Real estate disputes
  • Construction disputes, including builders liens

Litigation can cost companies and individuals a significant amount of time and money. Often, there are also emotional and psychological costs for all parties involved in litigation. Based on more than 45 years of experience, we know our business clients are looking for practical, cost-effective solutions to these sometimes complex business disputes. Our lawyers approach each shareholder and partnership issue on a case-by-case basis, carefully analyzing all facts and evidence available and identifying all possible options.

Our lawyers are focused on achieving the best possible results for every client. Often, this means employing efficient, practical solutions that result in settlement. However, from the very start of each case, our lawyers keep the possibility of trial in mind, should our client’s interests require representation in court.
