About this firm

WOODS LLP is one of the foremost litigation, arbitration and insolvency firms in Canada, recognized nationally and internationally for its expertise and success.

We act in all manner of disputes where the stakes are high and the outcome is of vital importance to our clients and their businesses. Our team of formidable attorneys - bilingual, trained in the civil law and common law, dedicated to understanding our clients' interests and devoted to successful advocacy - is known for developing winning strategies and delivering concrete results. We are proud of our reputation for having the talent and drive to handle even the largest and most complex disputes, while remaining at all times highly flexible, responsive and efficient.

A dispute resolution practice as diverse as the business world.

Our practice reflects the breadth and diversity of disputes that arise in the business world. We act for governments, public and private companies and individuals in all manner of corporate and commercial litigation, before all levels of courts and tribunals in Canada, including in disputes relating to corporate liability and governance, directors' and officers' liability, shareholders' or other stakeholders' disputes, securities litigation and generally in matters concerning the interpretation and performance of complex commercial agreements. We are also frequently retained in matters relating to professional liability - of accountants, investment dealers, engineers, architects and other professionals - as well as in product and manufacturers' liability cases, defamation suits, and disputes in the construction, energy, agri-business, IT and financial services industries, to name a few.

Our firm also boasts an important insolvency practice, which has grown significantly in recent years and includes some of the country's finest bankruptcy and restructuring lawyers.

We are also one of the few firms in Canada with a dedicated international arbitration practice, representing clients and serving as arbitrators in international commercial and investment arbitrations under the rules of the world's most important arbitral institutions.
