Judicial Review and Appeals

In litigation, the battle isn’t always over after the first decision. Protecting your interests throughout subsequent judicial review and appeals processes requires expertise, experience and skilled advocacy.

Our litigators have extensive experience in appellate and judicial review advocacy and have demonstrated their effectiveness time and again in the highest levels of Canadian courts. We are known and trusted by clients as well as recognized by the courts for our no-nonsense approach and persuasive advocacy.

Whether it is a judicial review application of a tribunal or board decision, or an appeal of a lower court decision, we work with our clients strategically to present their cases in the most powerful and effective way possible.


Hicks Morley litigators regularly represent clients at the highest courts in Ontario—the Divisional Court and the Court of Appeal for Ontario—as well as in the Federal Court, the Federal Court of Appeal and courts across Canada. We have appeared in the Supreme Court of Canada on more than a dozen cases—many of them landmark decisions—representing parties or intervenors.

Our judicial review practice includes review of:

  • labour arbitration and labour board decisions
  • human rights tribunal decisions
  • pay equity hearing tribunal decisions
  • workplace safety and insurance board decisions
  • Canada Labour Code arbitration awards
