Biography

Dan Carroll is a trial lawyer with nearly 40 years of experience representing individuals and small, mid-sized and Fortune 500 companies in complex civil litigation matters before trial and appellate courts. He has served as lead counsel in a broad range of litigation over the years, including personal injury, subrogated insurance, commercial disputes, Residential School abuse, construction, media and internet defamation, bankruptcy and insolvency, municipal tax appeals and legal malpractice defence. Dan is also frequently called upon by clients and other lawyers to provide an in-depth case analysis to ensure an effective strategy is in place before it proceeds.

In addition to his litigation practice, Dan leverages his deep experience resolving disputes in the courtroom to assist litigants engaged in alternative dispute resolution. He regularly mediates complex cases that involve considerable liability exposure and other challenging road blocks that impede informal settlement attempts. Dan has completed mediation courses offered by the Alberta Arbitration and Mediation Society and acted as a volunteer mediator for the Better Business Bureau. He also engages in arbitration for litigants seeking to resolve disputes without the considerable expense and unpredictability involved with jury trials.

Value to Clients

When clients are facing seemingly impossible disputes with potential liability exposure that puts their future in peril, they call on Dan to step in immediately and repair the situation to the full extent possible under the circumstances. He gets deeply involved in every case and always looks ten moves ahead to ensure that he and his clients explore every option available to achieve the desired outcome. Clients appreciate Dan’s ability to take a completely objective view of their cases and conduct a pragmatic analysis of their likelihood of success. He also takes pride in giving individual clients some measure of closure in difficult cases that have a profound impact on their lives.

Outside of Work

Dan enjoys expanding his knowledge of the law and even went back to school aged 60 to obtain his Master of Laws degree in 2013. He enjoys gardening, spending time at his home on Vancouver Island and engaging in a good debate with his former law school classmates in a small book club focused on contemporary fiction, history, politics and economics. Fifteen years ago, Dan accidentally purchased a health club membership in a silent auction and became dedicated to physical fitness - he has been working out with a personal trainer three times a week ever since.
