Commercial Litigation

Public Procurement

There are a complex set of rules that govern the way governments procure goods and services in Canada. We have significant experience representing private sector companies who have been treated unfairly while competing for opportunities with governments at the federal, provincial or municipal level. We also provide advice and assistance to governments in conducting fair and defensible solicitations.

Resolving unfair treatment in responding to a government solicitation may involve recourse to the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT), the Federal Court, Federal Court of Appeal, provincial Superior Courts, or a combination thereof. We have a track record of success in large complex public procurement disputes including those involving novel issues of law.

We also provide advice and guidance in relation to trade agreement obligations (international and sub-national), contract terminations, termination compensation negotiation, regulatory rights and obligations in relation to the Standard Acquisition Clauses and Conditions (SACC) Manual, the federal integrity provisions, the Financial Administration Act, Treasury Board approvals, and various provincial and municipal purchasing regulations.
