J. Michael Cabot

You want to spend your time running a successful business. But when disputes arise, it can feel like they can divert all your time and energy into managing issues. You need to ensure that you have a committed advocate on your side to provide the right advice and help resolve the problem as efficiently as possible.

Michael works with clients to cut through the complexity of litigation. He can help guide you through all aspects of resolving a dispute. He focuses on legal action, negotiations, mediation and trial so that you can continue to focus on what is important to your business. Michael’s priority is you and the best path forward for your organization.

Michael maintains a busy litigation practice acting for construction companies, property developers and clients on various contract law, as well as labour and employment law matters. He has acted for clients in major class action litigation. He has worked through aboriginal governance issues before the Federal Court. He has been there for clients when relationships broke down between shareholders and corporate officers. He is especially active in the construction industry, working on claims against builders on issues of design flaws and remediation, mechanics’ lien and breach of contract litigation.

In addition to various administrative settings, Michael has appeared before all levels of court in the province, including the Provincial Court of Newfoundland and Labrador, the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador, the Court of Appeal, the Federal Court of Canada, and the Federal Court of Appeal.
