Representing a wide range of individual, corporate and institutional clients across the full spectrum of dispute resolution needs, the litigators of Owen Bird never lose sight of the client’s ultimate objective: the advancement of long-term goals through the dispute resolution system in a timely and affordable manner. We understand that litigation is a means to an end, not an end in itself, and we advise and represent our clients accordingly.

Owen Bird litigators act for a deep and diverse client base that includes insurance companies, local and regional businesses, financial services providers, property owners and developers, health-care providers, energy and mining companies, employers and employees, small businesses, and of course, individuals from all walks of life. The common thread in all our representation is the highest commitment to serving the needs and interests of our clients.

Courtroom advocacy is an important tool in defending and advancing our clients’ interests, and Owen Bird’s litigators have appeared before every level of court, board and tribunal in B.C. and many other forums nationally. We do not hesitate to use the full power of the court system to represent our clients, but we are also skilled mediators and experienced advocates in front of arbitration panels. Our ultimate goal is to resolve our clients’ disputes in the most appropriate fashion with alacrity and outstanding service.
