* Neufeld Legal P.C.'s complex commercial litigation practice is highly selective in the cases that it undertakes, given the demands on present legal matters and long-term clientele, combined with our litigation practice being focused exclusively upon those matters that we believe our legal skills and experience have the ability to provide the legal representation that would effectively advance our client's legal case.

As such, our litigation practice tends to be restricted to international business disputes transpiring in Canada, internal corporate matters, and disputes related to the acquisition/sale of a business. Our work in those areas also includes work in commercial arbitration matters pertaining to the above-referenced matters.




Given the increasing commercial interdependence found in today's global economy, international commerce depends upon a multitude of foreign commercial relationships. Companies source foreign products, contract with foreign companies, and increasingly find themsselves required to adhere to foreign laws and regulations (and at times be brought before the trial courts in the foreign jurisdiction).

While partaking in international commerce the opportunities in the global market are constantly increasing, as are the foreign legal risks associated with international commercial activities. It is imperative that your company undertakes a proactive approach to managing its risks and resolving emergent commercial disputes. This is particular true with contracts and transactions that extend beyond national borders, where language and cultural differences can create serious misunderstandings between the contracting parties as to their roles and responsibilities, such that it quite easy for tension and difficulties to arise. If not dealt with promptly, this is often the impetus for disputes between the parties that can lead to litigation if not resolved by the business participants.

At Neufeld Legal P.C., we recognize the importance to securing the optimal resolution of each international business dispute, and where possible avoiding the necessity of resorting to trial litigation. As such, our first priority focuses on negotiating a favorable resolution for our clients, so as to avoid the uncertainty and expense of trial litigation (which can be particular costly in international disputes). However, where a negotiated resolution is not possible, we pursue an aggressive litigation strategy both in court and commercial arbitration, mindful of the reality that opportunities for subsequent out-of-court settlements may still exist.
