Appeals

We are experienced appeal lawyers. People often make the mistake of trying to reargue the same case they argued at the original hearing in front of an appeal court. That doesn’t work. Appellate litigation is a different game with different rules. There are rarely more than one or two real arguments worth pursuing in an appeal. We have spent years honing our skills in appellate litigation and developing the instincts to find the best argument and focus on what matters.

Our practice in this area includes:

Civil and administrative appeals of all kinds

Leave to appeal motions

Administrative appeal and review applications including applications to the Health Professions Appeal and Review Board for review of decisions made by committees under the Regulated Health Professions Act

Opinion work to assess the merits of an appeal
