Babin Bessner Spry is a boutique litigation firm that is active in a wide range of practice areas, including securities litigation, corporate governance issues (including director and officer liability), shareholder oppression litigation and derivative actions, insolvency, intellectual property, conspiracy, fraud, product liability, professional liability and discipline, employment, competition, class actions, and advertising law. We also handle a variety of public interest and pro bono matters.

We excel at complex, high stakes litigation. Our lawyers understand that disputes are not argued in a vacuum. Decisions in litigation often affect other aspects of our clients’ lives and businesses. We can navigate these decisions with you to help you achieve the best possible solution.

We have extensive experience litigating securities and commercial disputes at all levels of court, both in trial and on appeal, as well as before administrative tribunals and through alternative dispute resolution. We also handle a variety of public interest and pro bono matters, including refugee claims, wrongful death by law enforcement, sponsorship disputes of a publicly-funded arts company and more.

Our lawyers are consistently recognized as among Canada’s best, by both our peers and leading legal publications such as Lexpert.
