BD&P has an extraordinary depth of local industry knowledge and technical expertise which, hand in hand with their talented and experienced litigators, makes them one of the most recognized firms for handling of complex commercial disputes in Western Canada. BD&P has deliberately remained an independent Calgary firm and is uniquely positioned in the market, being the only independent firm of their size and experience focussed on client needs in Alberta.

Peacock Linder Halt & Mack legal team provides highly skilled and effective litigation and dispute resolution services to its clients. We have built a strong reputation for successful advocacy and achieve superior, effective results. Our firm is comprised of a dedicated team of lawyers from diverse backgrounds who provide litigation advice and associated services to individuals, corporations and institutions from Alberta, throughout Canada, and around the world.
Founded in 1994 to service the litigation needs of the Calgary legal and business communities, a significant part of the work we do originates from other law firms who recognize that our highly-skilled and litigation-focused team will serve their clients’ litigation needs in circumstances (such as conflicts of interest) where they cannot act themselves.
The confidence in our team shown by our legal peers has always been a source of great pride for our firm.
Our partners are experienced trial and appellate lawyers who have appeared in all levels of court in Alberta, as well as at the Federal Court and the Supreme Court of Canada. They have represented clients in mediations and arbitrations both domestic and international, and many of our partners have acted as mediators and arbitrators in complex commercial disputes.

We are frequently retained by major domestic and international corporations in the defense of class actions. Representing parties at every stage of the lawsuit, from pre-certification motions and applications through to trial, we bring to each phase coordinated strategies and effective communications to streamline the litigation process. We also advise clients on mitigating their class action risk and proactively monitor trends in prospective class action developments.
Recognizing that many disputes are settled prior to trial, our commercial and technical expertise provides another valuable set of skills to the negotiation and settlement of litigation. Our team approach ensures that we provide the most timely, effective and innovative support to our clients. Our lawyers' reputations, contributions to Canadian case law, and distinguished history of service have resulted in top rankings in all major legal directories for many of our litigators, in a multitude of litigation practice areas.
