Civil Litigation

Civil litigation encompasses a broad range of litigation including professional and medical negligence, media law and defamation, construction and surety, as well as corporate commercial litigation.

 

Foster & Company acts in cases involving doctors, dentists, lawyers, financial planners, engineers, and architects.

We both defend against and bring claims on behalf of plaintiffs in professional and medical negligence actions.   We take special interest in defending insurance professionals including agents, brokers, and adjusters.

As consumers and patients, you put your faith in the hands of many professionals.  However, there are times when the work carried out by these professionals is negligent, leaving you physically or financially injured.  If you are concerned as to whether the actions of a professional were negligent, we can help.

In construction and surety claims, we represent a variety of contractors, builders, and insurers along with workers, property owners and sureties.  Our team of experienced lawyers can provide the necessary guidance when it comes to all manners of claims, including construction disputes, filing and vacating mechanics’ liens, surety bonds and in the event of breach of contract.  If you are involved in a construction process dispute or believe you need to sue or are being sued, we are here to help.

In corporate and commercial disputes, inevitably a business of every size will face legal challenges that require professional guidance.  We can help enforce contracts, resolve shareholder disputes, assist with debt collection and provide defence of regulatory offences laid against corporations and corporate officers.

In media & defamation cases, we cut through the red tape and legal procedures to help the media report the news.  We believe that courtrooms should be open to public scrutiny and our governments should be transparent and quick to share information.  We assist in lifting publication bans and sealing orders that block media from reporting on important matters.  We provide pre-publication advice to print, broadcast and online news agencies, as well as defend against defamation claims brought against media agencies.
