Halifax, NS – The accomplished litigation team of Chris Robinson, Q.C., Kevin Gibson, Q.C., and Michael Blades will be joining forces with boutique litigation and labour and employment law firm, Pink Larkin.
With 70 years of experience between them, Chris, Kevin and Michael have built a national practice in dispute resolution with a focus on advocacy in all areas of the construction industry, and in complex commercial, insurance, administrative and tort matters.
The three lawyers have successfully represented clients before all levels of court in Canada, and in all forms of alternative dispute resolution in complex domestic and international commercial disputes. As a complement to their advocacy practice, Chris, Kevin and Michael advise and represent parties in the negotiation and drafting of procurement and construction agreements in significant infrastructure projects throughout Canada.
“The addition of Chris, Kevin and Michael to our expanding team will be a major move in Atlantic Canada’s legal market and an enormous boost to the calibre of our litigation team,” says Ronald A. Pink, Q.C., co-founder and managing partner of Pink Larkin. “Their presence will elevate a core area of our business that has been developing in the past few years to match the standards set by our nationally-recognized employment and labour practice.”
Senior trial lawyer and Pink Larkin co-founder Raymond F. Larkin, Q.C. agrees: “Pink Larkin has a solid history of handling complex litigation. For the last few years, we’ve followed a deliberate strategy to advance our firm and build upon our litigation history by attracting experienced litigators to the team. The addition of Chris, Kevin and Michael will cement our litigation position.”
Chris, Kevin, and Michael are joining Pink Larkin’s existing commercial litigation group including George MacDonald, Q.C., one of Canada’s top litigators. Other members of the litigation team include Nathan Sutherland, Bettina Quistgaard, John D. Townsend, Q.C., Ronald E. Pizzo, and Brenda Comeau.
“Across the country we have witnessed the growth of boutique firms specializing in focused practice areas to better serve the demands of sophisticated clients such as the construction industry,” says Chris Robinson. “We are excited to be part of this bold step for Pink Larkin as it responds to this need in the legal marketplace. We believe our experience will help Pink Larkin establish a second pillar of expertise in construction law and complex business dispute resolution, which will complement its well-known presence in the labour and employment law field.”
