Hicks Morley’s litigators are well-known for skilled and effective advocacy, built through our frequent appearances before the Ontario courts and a wide variety of arbitration boards and administrative tribunals. We have achieved successful outcomes for our clients, with many cases resulting in precedent-setting decisions.
Our litigators also have significant experience with class proceedings relating broadly to workplace and pension matters. We act for private and public sector clients in class action litigation relating to wrongful and constructive dismissal, statutory severance, overtime, pension benefits and pension administration, employee and retiree benefits, employee retention bonus claims and employee health claims.
In addition to conducting trials and hearings, we regularly appear as counsel before the Ontario Divisional Court, the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Federal Court. We have also appeared on numerous occasions at the Supreme Court of Canada. The range of matters that we have appeared on as counsel is as diverse as our practice areas, and includes:
- class actions

- restrictive covenants and unfair competition claims
- labour and civil injunctions
- judicial review applications and appellate advocacy
- human rights and Charter litigation
