Langlois Wins an Important Arbitration Case for CN
Langlois Kronström Desjardins recently successfully completed its engaged on behalf of Canadian National in an arbitration matter involving the Agence Métropolitaine de Transport (“AMT”). After successfully prosecuting a multi-million dollar claim against AMT, Langlois Kronström Desjardins recently had the arbitration award homologated by the Superior Court of Québec. In so doing, the award became final and fully enforceable.
This case concerned a dispute on the interpretation of a long term contract between CN and AMT in connection with the operation of a commuter train service between Montréal and Mont-Saint-Hilaire. The contract contained an arbitration clause, which was triggered by CN and opposed by AMT, who challenged the jurisdiction of the arbitrator. Langlois Kronström Desjardins defeated this challenge and was able to bring the matter before an arbitrator, who, after a lengthy hearing, ruled in favour of CN on all points.
Langlois Kronström Desjardins, with a team composed of Dimitri Maniatis, Raynold Langlois, Q.C., and Stéfan Chripounoff, is pleased to have acted for CN in this important case
