Good Faith Principle Risk Management Toolkit

Good Faith Principle Risk Management Toolkit

The recent Supreme Court of Canada decision in Bhasin v. Hrynew changes the game in contract law, with all agreements now subject to a general organizing principle of good faith. The ruling is expected to open the door to lawsuits, as plaintiffs and counsel take advantage of the decision and the uncertainty it creates, and lower courts struggle to define a consistent approach.

Is your organization protected? We offer a toolkit to build and maintain a thoughtful and disciplined risk management plan, that helps to fortify your position in the event of a challenge. It’s an early prevention approach with a flexible, fixed-fee arrangement that could save you millions in litigation costs.

How it Works
  • Risk Assessement: We review your contracts and contracting policies by level of exposure and outline key risks and impacts.
  • Action Plan: You receive a clear strategy for negotiating, drafting and performing your contracts that ensures key risks are addressed.

How Clients Benefit
  • First-hand experience: Our top-tier litigation team successfully represented the appellant before the Supreme Court of Canada in Bhasin v. Hrynew so we have a finger on the impacts of this case and the evolution of case law.
  • Enhanced risk management: Leave no unanswered questions in your contractual relationships by taking control of business and legal risk.
  • Flexibility and scalability: We offer a customized risk management program, based on your budget, risk appetite and nature of your contract relationships.
