Funt & Company
Litigation Counsel


Appellate advocacy is very different from work in the trenches of provincial courts. Appeals are not simply another chance to bring the same arguments used at trial.  Appeals courts have limited powers and are scrupulous about staying within those powers.  The proceedings are sombre, intellectual, and precise. 

We have recent experience in over a dozen appeals before provincial courts of appeal.  We have obtained orders for new hearings in a number of cases, including cases involving serious violence, homicide, and indeterminate incarceration.  We have also defeated appeals brought by the government.
