Manufacturing is a key component of Canada’s economy, encompassing the production, sale and distribution of various finished products.  Significant manufacturing sectors include automotive, aerospace, defence, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, hydrogen and fuel cells, medical devices and plastics.  With free trade and developing consumer and industrial trends the composition and structure of the Canadian manufacturing industry is constantly evolving.

CHS has significant experience as financial experts for both plaintiffs and defendants in high-value and complex manufacturing disputes and investigations.  Our mandates have included breaches of contract with respect to the supply of raw materials and finished goods, valuation of companies due to purchase and sale transactions and for shareholder purchases, forensic investigations into alleged misappropriations such as non arm’s length subcontractors and misuse of funds and class actions involving alleged misrepresentations with respect to manufactured goods.
