Dylan Esch is a trial and appeals lawyer helping Alberta-based clients with challenging commercial litigation and insurance defense. He has represented clients before the Provincial Court of Alberta and the Court of Queen’s Bench, the Court of Appeal and before a variety of tribunals in all areas of the litigation process.

Dylan’s experience covers a wide range of complex claims including real property issues, commercial lease enforcement corporate commercial disputes and fraud in all contexts. He also handles issues including:

  • Mortgage enforcement
  • Condo bylaw enforcement and fee collection
  • Franchise agreement litigation
  • Contractual disputes
  • Professional negligence
  • Debt collection
  • Estate litigation

Dylan’s clients range from financial institutions, insurance companies, creditors and condominium corporations, to land developers and individual homeowners. His professional, practical and efficient approach to litigation is what sets him apart from other lawyers.

Dylan assists a wide variety of banks, private lenders and condominium corporations in navigating the foreclosure process through the courts with a specific focus on shortening the time his clients have to wait between issuing the demand letter or claim and getting full satisfaction of the obligation. Dylan is also routinely sought out by landlords to assist with lease enforcement, ensuring that commercial tenants meet their obligations under the lease and if prudent, issuing claims to maximize recovery for his clients who have to deal defaulting tenants. In cases where tenants remove valuable assets in a "midnight move" he will pursue the tenants and their assets to ensure they are held responsible for their obligations under the lease.

"For me, it’s about helping my clients come to practical solutions and not just recommending "textbook" approaches that may not be right for them. I keep us focused, grounded and realistic even though we may be dealing with stressful and heated issues that can stand in the way of the practical components of case. This allows us to work more efficiently together so that we can move forward in a streamlined way to get the results we want."

No matter what the subject area is, Dylan has earned a reputation for energetically pursuing litigation in a way that is professional and courteous, yet efficient because he knows that for many of his clients, reputational risk must be carefully managed.

Outside of Work

With two young daughters, Dylan’s spends as much of his free time as possible trying to keep up with them. Dylan also enjoys playing sports including hockey, basketball and volleyball. The team aspect is what draws him in, especially "the chance to catch up with friends afterwards."
