David Hawreluk's legal practice is focused entirely on complex contract and commercial litigation matters. He and his commercial litigation team represent clients primarily in the construction, oil and gas servicing, and related business fields and have extensive experience with contract and construction disputes, complex commercial and construction litigation, arbitrations and mediations, shareholder disputes including shareholder oppression, derivative actions, plans of arrangement, and injunctions for breaches of confidentiality agreements and restrictive covenants. In an effort to avoid litigation on construction projects, clients often retain David and his team to assist with contract management on projects, to advise and assist with contract interpretation, to document and respond to change order claims or requests, and resolve disputes during construction.
David has broad trial and appellant experience and has appeared before all levels of court in Alberta, the trial division of the Federal Court of Canada and various arbitration, administrative, mediation and regulatory panels.
David has been an instructor for the Alberta Bar Admission Course and at various Legal Education Society of Alberta seminars. He is the author of “The Lawyer's Duty to Himself and the Code of Professional Conduct”, published by the Law Society of Upper Canada Gazette.
