Commercial & Business Litigation

Business disputes are an unfortunate reality of doing business. Regardless of the nature of the business or industry, almost all businesses will encounter at some point a situation of a contentious nature. The list of possible disputes is nearly limitless. At the same time, resolving those disputes can be difficult. Court procedures and rules are not simple, the law can be murky and voluminous, other parties may employ their own lawyers to gain an advantage over unrepresented parties, and the process can be time consuming.

Hamilton Duncan has helped numerous businesses navigate their way through all manner of commercial disputes. Our team of litigation lawyers has a broad range of experience resolving difficult problems across numerous industries and in a host of different venues such as court proceedings, arbitrations, mediations, and administrative tribunal proceedings. That experience, coupled with our dedication, creativity and skill, makes Hamilton Duncan a leading choice for businesses in the Fraser Valley and beyond when they are facing tough legal problems and need effective representation.
