Who's Who Legal Canada - Construction

Harvey J Kirsh is a recognised authority in construction law, and has over 40 years of experience in the arbitration, mediation and litigation of complex construction disputes arising out of infrastructure, energy, transportation, industrial, commercial, and institutional projects. Designated as a chartered arbitrator, Harvey was included in the Chambers Global list of Canada’s top arbitrators. Aside from his litigation counsel practice with Glaholt LLP, he also practises as a neutral arbitrator and mediator of construction claims and disputes, both domestically and internationally. He has been selected as the recipient of the Ontario Bar Association's Award of Excellence in Alternative Dispute Resolution.

Harvey is the founding president and governor of the Canadian College of Construction Lawyers, and also has the distinction of having been elected a fellow of both the American College of Construction Lawyers and the College of Commercial Arbitrators.

He has authored numerous books and articles and has chaired conferences and seminars throughout North America on construction law and alternative dispute resolution. He is also founding editor-in-chief of Construction Law Reports and the founding editor of the Construction Law Letter, both of which have been in publication since 1984.

Harvey has been an adjunct professor at the University of Toronto faculty of law, where he created and taught a course entitled ‘From Blueprints to Buildings: Legal Issues in the Construction Industry’. He has also been prominently featured in the field of construction law and alternative dispute resolution in the Best Lawyers Canada directory; the Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory; the Lexpert/American Lawyer Guide to the Leading 500 Lawyers in Canada; the Report on Business Magazine Lexpert special edition on infrastructure and Who’s Who Legal: Commercial Mediation.
