McQuarrie Hunter LLP’s litigation lawyers have a broad range of appellate experience from commercial disputes to personal injury to estates and family law matters. Our lawyers offer advice and representation on appeals from inception, when you are considering an appeal, to completion, when you need a strong advocate to argue before the Court.

Our appellate services include reviewing reasons on interlocutory matters and final judgments, preparing factums and appeal books, making interlocutory applications to the Court of Appeal, making stay of execution applications at both the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal, and advancing argument to the Court.
