Advocacy is the art of the barrister, and the heart of our practice.
Code Hunter has long been recognized as one of Canada’s pre-eminent litigation practices. Our proficiency is representation in trial and appellate courts, as counsel before regulatory tribunals and in arbitration and other alternative dispute resolution processes. The hallmarks of our work are legal scholarship, professionalism, integrity and tenacity.
Our partners are trial lawyers who founded an independent firm focused exclusively on litigation after a merger with a national practice many years ago. We have deep and longstanding roots in the legal profession in Alberta and an unparalleled reputation for excellence in advocacy. From the courtroom to the boardroom, we are negotiators and advocates, creative problem solvers and trusted business advisors.
Our practice takes us wherever our clients’ interests take them.
Alberta is our home base, but our expertise makes us at home anywhere. We appear in court and arbitral proceedings in Alberta and across other provinces and territories. Energy and environmental interests involve us in disputes across Canada’s resource sector, from Calgary to Fort McMurray, Saskatoon or Fort St. John. We have represented mining interests in the real north above the 60th parallel, and are regularly engaged as conflicts counsel by clients and attorneys below the 49th. Construction claims and product liability actions take us to site across the western provinces. We take instruction from clients in Toronto, London, Houston and New York. Wherever the forum, our commitment to the highest standards of our profession remains the same.
