In a competitive, increasingly global business world, disputes are inevitable. However, litigation is not the only solution.

McMillan's Litigation Group routinely handles complex arbitrations in a wide variety of contexts. We also represent clients in other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanisms, including negotiation and mediation.

We work with leading Canadian companies, multinationals and growing businesses to achieve arbitration and ADR outcomes that support their business goals. We have represented clients in complex arbitrations before the International Chamber of Commerce, the American Arbitration Association, the London Court of International Arbitration, the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes, and other international arbitration institutions, as well as in domestic and ad hoc arbitrations.

Whoever the client, our lawyers bring the same tenacity, attention to detail and commercial focus to every proceeding.

McMillan professionals help clients lead by:

  • Advising on alternative dispute resolution regimes
  • Negotiating and drafting arbitration agreements
  • Representing them before Canadian and international arbitral institutions
  • Enforcing and seeking to set aside arbitration awards
