Biography

Tim Chick, LL.M. is a partner in Davis LLP’s Calgary office with a practice focused on employment and labour law as well as corporate/commercial and securities litigation.

Tim has practised in Calgary for over 24 years, first as an associate then as a partner at two other national law firms, eventually joining Davis LLP as one of the firm’s first four partners in 2003.

As an employment and labour lawyer, Tim has extensive experience in all employment-related matters but fundamentally enjoys his role as counsellor to his clients on employment and labour law issues. Tim's specific experience in the employment and labour law area includes matters such as negotiating employment agreements, preparing corporate policies on matters such as alcohol and drug testing, privacy, internet use and discipline, advising clients on disability and human rights-related issues, assisting clients who are taking over an existing business, dealing with all manner of employment termination issues (including mass layoffs), mediating disputes between clients and their employees and negotiating an effective settlement of such disputes, or, if a resolution cannot be achieved, taking the matter before the Courts.

As a corporate/commercial litigator, Tim has handled numerous cases involving contractual disputes, oppression and shareholder derivative actions, corporate divorces, shareholder proxy contests, claims against officers and directors, commercial insurance coverage disputes, claims arising from the breakdown of oil and gas equipment and turbines, disputes arising from the construction of buildings and machinery, and other similar matters.

As part of his employment, corporate/commercial and securities litigation practice, Tim has appeared frequently before Alberta’s Court of Queen's Bench and the Alberta Court of Appeal, most recently as counsel on a seminal Alberta Court of Appeal decision involving the enforceability of non-competition agreements. He has also defended and advised many clients who have become involved in matters involving the Alberta Securities Commission, including both investigations and hearings.

Tim’s roster of clients include large and small oil and gas companies, financial services firms, private equity companies, large Canadian insurers, security service providers, oilfield service companies, aviation providers, internet service companies and, in one memorable instance, Mr. Lennox Lewis, who at that time was the heavyweight champion of the world.
