We are pleased to announce that two Kornfeld LLP partners, Dan Parlow and Shane Coblin, have been recognized as Litigation Stars in the 2020 edition of Benchmark Litigation Canada: the Definitive Guide to Canada’s Leading Law Firms and Attorneys. Following an extensive, on-the-ground review process, both clients and peers recognized Dan and Shane and Kornfeld LLP respectively in dispute resolution litigation.
“A shop with a specialty niche in Vancouver’s vibrant-but-volatile real estate and development arena, Kornfeld has earned itself a steady stream of enthusiasm from both peers and clients. ‘[They have been] Outstanding from beginning to now,’ cheers one client. ‘They took us on in 2013 and are still representing us in upcoming BC Court of Appeals proceedings. They won our case in May 2019.’ Another client raves, ‘They are absolutely prudent in every aspect of litigation and they have not made any mistakes at all. This is a very rare virtue amongst well known and busy lawyers. They have undertaken incredible collaboration with us as clients and provided outstanding collective lawyer efforts at trial.’ One peer, an adversary, notes humorously, ‘After 85 days of trial against them, I can honestly say I still like them.’”
Shane was singled out by a client as “superb,” “focused and detail oriented.” In 2019, Shane was recognized as a Litigation Star in Benchmark Litigation Canada. In the real estate and construction arenas, Shane represents owners, investors and major developers in complex disputes with shareholders, vendors, contractors, builders, strata corporations and other parties in a broad range of significant matters.
Dan was noted by a peer to be “a hard-working guy who really digs in on files. He will chase everything to the ends of the earth, so you’d better have your story straight when you’re dealing with him.” Dan’s clients include investors, property owners, financial institutions, entrepreneurs, estates, trusts, beneficiaries, professional persons and high-tech businesses. He has helped resolve claims by creditors and disputed investments, claims over business assets, shareholder and partnership interests and commercial property, disputed wills, trusts and related claims.
