The Chambers:
Hunter Litigation Chambers is regularly recognised as one of the premier dispute resolution firms in Canada. Lead counsel Randy Kaardal QC, Claire Hunter QC, Ryan Dalziel, QC, Mike Stephens, Mark Oulton and Brent Olthuis are each consistently identified in peer-reviewed publications as leading lawyers across various litigation-related categories and subject areas. Bill Smart QC , one of the province’s most notable criminal lawyers and a Fellow of both the American College of Trial Lawyers and the International Society of Barristers, adds expertise in criminal, corporate and regulatory matters. Associate Counsel Martin Taylor QC, one of Canada’s leading counsel and adjudicators over the past 50 years, rounds out the firm’s expertise at the senior level. With deep talent at the associate level, including many former judicial clerks, the firm has the bench strength and ability to handle all manner of commercial, criminal and administrative disputes. The firm routinely acts across a broad spectrum of subject areas including class actions (including anti-trust and product liability cases), professional negligence, natural resources disputes, labour and employment, defamation, public and constitutional law, Aboriginal law, and criminal and quasi-criminal prosecutions. In addition to their respective practices before trial courts, administrative and arbitral tribunals, counsel at Hunter Litigation Chambers appear regularly in the Court of Appeal for British Columbia and the Supreme Court of Canada, and in the Federal Court and Federal Court of Appeal.
