Stikeman Elliott’s Construction Group assists clients in structuring, preparing and negotiating significant construction contracts and supports them throughout the entire process, as well as through complex construction litigation files. Our in-depth experience allows us to determine when a client will be best served with an industry-standard contract and when a project needs a tailor-made solution.

We represent clients involved in large-scale projects in the real estate, energy, renewables, mining, infrastructure and other sectors, across Canada and around the world. Furthermore, Stikeman Elliott acts for all private-sector stakeholder groups, including construction project lenders, investors, guarantors, insurers, and consultants, as well as public sector entities, municipalities, and other levels of government with respect to complex redevelopment, infrastructure and public-private partnership projects.

This multi-disciplinary team includes construction litigators who are experts in the strategic management of litigation risk. Working from offices across Canada, our litigators have played key roles in several important cases in the construction industry, including before the Supreme Court of Canada. When regulatory questions arise, our team has an in-depth understanding of the legislative frameworks that govern the construction sector at both the federal and provincial levels.
