Brian A. Babcock

Partner

Brian has successfully practiced personal injury and commercial litigation, including employment law, municipal law and construction claims, for more than three decades. He has substantial experience in risk management, environmental issues and insurance claims and labour law including arbitrations and injunctions.

Brian’s clients range from entrepreneurial owner-operated businesses to multinational corporations. He is particularly adept at advising clients on planning to lessen exposure to lawsuits. Brian shifts easily between advising on shareholder disputes, contract interpretation, wrongful dismissal, asset recovery and debt collection cases.

Brian has appeared before all levels of the Ontario court, including the Court of Appeal. In today’s complex litigation arena, clients value both his abilities as a litigator in court and his commitment to finding out-of-courtroom solutions to disputes.

Brian is a frequent presenter at continuing legal education seminars, and a contributor to Thunder Bay Business magazine. He is a sessional lecturer at the Bora Laskin Faculty of Law at Lakehead University, teaching the upper year course in Remedies.
