Contract Law

Our Vancouver business lawyers can assist with written and verbal agreements made between two parties regarding a particular business matter. We can set out the legal parameters for interpreting contractual language and determining remedies when a breach of contract occurs. At its core, contract law in Canada generally requires all parties involved to act in good faith, meaning that each party must adhere to the terms of the agreement and not deliberately deceive or mislead each other. Contract law also stipulates that all contracts must meet certain requirements before they can be enforced by a court, which include offer and acceptance, consideration (payment or promise of payment), competency of the parties and capacity of the subject matter.

Employment Law

We can assist with interpretation of laws governing employee rights in areas such as hiring practices, discrimination issues and health & safety regulations in the workplace. We can help you make sure that your business is compliant with all of the relevant employment laws. We can work with you to develop comprehensive employee policies, create contracts and agreements, provide guidance on hiring and termination procedures, as well as advise you regarding any disputes. Additionally, we can conduct compliance reviews to ensure that the company is adhering to the applicable laws, regulations, and standards. With our knowledge and expertise in this area, we can help protect your business from costly penalties or litigation.
