Experienced Appellate Counsel for Court and Regulatory Proceedings
Appeals and judicial reviews differ considerably from trials and proceedings before administrative decision-makers. Different procedural rules, including limitation periods, govern proceedings on appeals and judicial review. Counsel’s familiarity with such procedural regimes and issues is essential; it can often be the determining factor in accessing the remedies sought by the client.
Equally important, to present an appeal or judicial review effectively, counsel’s focus must shift to address the different functions and substantive considerations of the appellate decision-maker.
The lawyers at Eyford Macaulay Shaw & Padmanabhan LLP have extensive experience with handling appeals and judicial review matters. Their experience as Vancouver appeal lawyers with a large national firm handling lengthy and high-stakes litigation equipped them with the substantive experience required to give clients the best possible legal advice and strategy.
