Real Estate Litigation

Jim Doyle is a trial and appeals lawyer with many years of experience helping clients with difficult insurance defence and corporate commercial litigation. He has represented clients in the Supreme Court of Canada, Alberta Court of Appeal, Court of Queen's Bench and Provincial Court. In addition, Jim represents clients before numerous tribunals and in all areas of alternative dispute resolution. He is the practice group leader of the firm's Calgary Insurance Group.

Jim's years of insurance litigation and courtroom experience set him apart from many other trial and appeals lawyers. "I understand the importance that insurance clients put on closing files quickly and efficiently. I'm not interested in getting rich on one file or on taking unnecessary steps. I evaluate a case, develop a litigation strategy with the client and get it right... the first time."

Jim's litigation experience covers a wide range of complex and potentially high-exposure claims, including real estate, professional liability, corporate commercial disputes and officer, director and shareholder liability. He also handles issues such as:

  • Employment
  • Fidelity
  • Livery and transportation services
  • Environmental liability
  • Debt recovery
  • Subrogation and
  • Government regulation and administrative law

Regardless of the subject matter, Jim has earned a reputation as a creative, strategic thinker with a persuasive courtroom demeanor and an acute awareness of how to achieve results.

Outside of Work

Jim is one of several Field lawyers who perform together in a rock-and-roll band. "Some of our gigs are paid, some are for charity or firm-related events and they're all fun. We're the best corporate band you've never heard."
