Practice Overview‍

Christopher articled and practiced at a full-service firm before establishing Funt & Company Litigation Counsel in 2012.

He has acted as lead counsel in litigation before all levels of court in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Alberta*, as well as before the Tax Court of Canada and the Federal Court of Canada. He excels in matters that do not fit into the silos of hyperspecialized practice; for example, he has:

-obtained complete stays of proceeding in all three of the tax evasion prosecutions on which he has been retained;

-obtained resolution of civil forfeiture allegations prior to examinations for discovery;

-obtained complete stays of proceedings for clients facing sex assault allegations, and house arrest dispositions where convictions could not be avoided;

-acted on appeals resulting in the overturning of indeterminate sentences as well as convictions for violent crime;

-represented clients in administrative disputes involving child protection, agricultural land regulation, Medicare enrollment, involuntary detention for mental healthcare, and energy regulation; and,

-represented clients in civil litigation against the federal and provincial governments involving issues of battery, unlawful search, physician licensure, and forestry contracting.
