Practice Areas

It's nice to call yourself a "full-service" firm, but what does that really mean? Or, perhaps more to the point, what are we really good at?

Shibley Righton LLP has been known, for many years, for the superb advocacy skills of its litigators and for the high standards of its corporate commercial solicitors.

There is strong sense of coordination and integration among our practice groups, individuals and staff. Our approach to doing business is consistent throughout the firm and we work as a team.

A very diverse team of litigators forms our Civil Litigation Group. Their practices lead them to appear before a full spectrum of provincial, federal and appellate Courts, Boards and Tribunals, where they strive to continue to maintain the great reputation established by its past and present litigators.

Our Business Law Group practitioners aspire to be "trusted advisors" to its diverse client base of crown corporations, public institutions, multinationals and small and mid-sized enterprises which receive excellent legal counsel and strategic business advice.

The firm is also very well-known for its Education and Public Law Group, whose nine lawyers stand head and shoulders above any law firm in Canada in the important field of education law.

But high flyers aside, the "meat and potatoes" of any major law firm is in delivering, day in and day out, on the typical legal issues facing businesses and individuals. That we do, with top lawyers in nineteen practice groups covering most areas of law.
