A global approach to our client's best interests

Civil and commercial litigation

Your situation will be analyzed from every angle

Civil and commercial litigation

Our daily activities whether they relate to our business endeavours, our work or our private life can be a source of conflict, concern and even embarrassment.

Here at Alepin Gauthier, the lawyers in our Civil and Commercial litigation department will advise and help you settle any litigious situation that you can encounter. Whether you are an individual or a business, will make sure that you are properly represented should any problem arise from the interpretation and application of any of the following contracts:

  • Residential leases;
  • Employment;
  • Construction;
  • Sale and/or lease;
  • Distribution;
  • Franchising agreements;
  • Shareholder agreements;
  • Insurance;
  • Loan agreements, with or without a security (movable hypothecs, real estate hypothecs, security on accounts receivable, etc.);
  • And more.

Our Construction Law department can assist throughout the different stages of any construction project. Our services can be useful before the construction has begun, during construction work, and once the work is completed. The lawyers of Alepin Gauthier have been relied upon, over many years, to represent multiple clients working in various areas of construction. We have helped:

  • Owners;
  • Property developers;
  • Entrepreneurs, subcontractors, as well as suppliers of material;
  • Real estate agents;
  • Associations of entrepreneurs and construction professionals.

Our lawyers at Alepin Gauthier may also represent you before the various courts throughout Quebec the matter of:

  • Collections;
  • Insurance;
  • Civil liability;
  • Contractual liability;
  • Termination or annulment of a contract;
  • Real estate law;
  • Damages resulting from bodily injuries;
  • Medical liability;
  • Banking law;
  • Business law;
  • Exercise of rights under a hypothec, including the rights of persons who have participated in the construction or the renovation of a building.

Furthermore, when the situation is appropriate, our litigation team will propose to proceed through negotiation, mediation or arbitration in order to substantially reduce the costs, uncertainties and delays inherent to a trial. For more information on the subject, we invite you to consult, the section titled Alternate Modes of Conflict Resolution.
