Appellate Advocacy

The Lawyers at Richards Buell Sutton LLP have considerable experience advising and representing clients on appellate matters, including in the British Columbia Court of Appeal, the Yukon Court of Appeal, the Federal Court of Appeal, and the Supreme Court of Canada.

Our lawyers have successfully acted for both appellants and respondents in Canada’s appellate courts, on numerous important cases. We also act on appeals to the superior courts from arbitrators’ awards and decisions of the Small Claims Court. Our clients include individuals, corporations, and institutional clients whose important personal or business interests may be affected by the outcome of an appeal.

We are frequently consulted to provide opinions on the prospect of bringing or responding to an appeal, whether or not we acted as counsel at the lower court. We aim to prosecute appeals in a cost-effective manner for our clients, and can advise you on the merits, and likely costs, of an appeal before you proceed. Note that an appeal to the B.C. Court of Appeal must be commenced within 30 days.
