Business Courts in the United States and Around the World
The only business court located in Canada can be found in Toronto, Ontario. The Superior Court of Justice has established the Commercial List which is comprised of a team of judges who have experience in managing complex commercial litigation. The Commercial List has been met with considerable approval and has helped expedite many complex cases through the litigation process. Considering the expeditious nature and specialized function the court performs it’s hard to imagine complex commercial litigation not proceeding through this specialized court, but the Commercial List is voluntary, except in matters involving bankruptcy. Based upon the applied success of the Commercial List one would expect similar courts to crop up across Canada in the near future.
