Privacy

The ever expanding technological revolution has made privacy illusory. From credit card and banking information to government files and electronic health records, breach of privacy can be serious and costly. Our litigation team is at the forefront of this developing area of the law.

Employment and Civil Rights

Employees unjustly terminated, discriminated against and accused of wrongdoing are often victimized again when attempting to seek reasonable compensation for their losses. Larmer Stickland can help navigate the administrative and litigation remedies available to these disadvantaged individuals.

We also represent and provide strategic advice to employers at every stage of the employment relationship.

Complex Civil Cases and Class Proceedings

For every problem, there is a solution. We pride ourselves on handling complex litigation issues that don't fit into pre-defined categories. Institutional negligence, environmental damages, and government neglect are all areas of active file work for our team of professionals. If justice is best served by bringing many claims at once, as opposed to just a few, we will prosecute claims on a Class Action basis.

Construction Law

From construction liens to contractual disputes and negligent workmanship, our team has the skill set to provide the small contractor or the large developer the strategic solutions to protect their investment.
