ZVK represents businesses, not-for-profits and individuals in respect of civil and commercial disputes, with particular expertise in Internet and social media matters, including e-commerce disputes, Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL), privacy law, online defamation, Intellectual Property disputes, cyber-security, and cyber-fraud. ZVK lawyers believe that the best litigation strategy is litigation avoidance. We assist our clients with avoiding common pitfalls that often lead to litigation and, when appropriate, we recommend utilizing alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanisms to resolve the disputes. We work with our clients to develop the best strategy to achieve their goals in the most cost-effective way.
