Our specialized Appellate Practice Group is unique to ZTGH. We are experts in the particular procedural nature of appeals and have cumulatively argued more than 60. Our group is focused on winning cases at the next level, while safeguarding our client’s financial interests.
We have argued appeals from private arbitration decisions to the Superior Court of Justice, on judicial review to Divisional Court, to the Court of Appeal and to the Supreme Court of Canada, including a landmark victory at our country’s highest court (Zurich v Chubb, 2015 SCC 19).
No matter the level of tribunal or court, or the circumstances surrounding the appeal, our Appellate Practice Group has the experience, ingenuity and proven track record of success that ensures our clients are properly and expertly represented on appeal. We also offer consultation services and a cost/benefit analysis for clients who are unsure about whether to pursue an appeal.
