Evan Cooke is a litigation lawyer whose primary areas of practice are municipal, expropriation, and regulatory law. His focus is providing sophisticated and pragmatic litigation and dispute resolution services to private, corporate, and government clients. 


Evan is an experienced trial lawyer, having represented clients before all levels of court in British Columbia. He has also achieved success for clients in the Federal Court of Canada, the Federal Court of Appeal, the Ontario Superior Court, and the Ontario Municipal Board. 


Complex litigation matters involving land and resources are Evan’s particular areas of interest. From litigating the legal status of historical roads for ranchers, to advancing expropriation claims for multinational corporations, to successfully appealing an onerous tax decision for an international developer, Evan is detail-oriented and practical. 


From 2013 to 2021, he served as President of the British Columbia Expropriation Association, and he remains active on the Board of that organization. Further, Evan presents frequently on expropriation and municipal law topics. 


Before joining Eyford Partners LLP, Evan was a litigation partner of a large national law firm where he was the regional head of the Expropriation Law, Municipal Law, and Railway Law focus groups.
