Brian A. Foster

Brian is one of the founders of Foster Townsend LLP. A trailblazer at heart, Brian has been instrumental in leading the firm towards its current focus on civil litigation. His practice encompasses civil litigation including personal injury, insurance litigation, medical and professional liability, as well as wrongful dismissal, administrative and labour law. Recognizing the need to reduce or confine litigation to those situations where there is no other viable alternative, Brian has taken specific training in mediation, a central focus in alternative dispute resolution. He readily embraces negotiation, mediation and arbitration as essential tools in resolving disputes.

Brian practices law following one philosophy; resolve disputes as quickly and efficiently as possible. His style is to become familiar with both the issues and the client, discerning all aspects of each individual case. Brian works in a timely, cost-effective and positive manner, his ultimate goal

being to get people out of litigation and on with their lives. Brian lives his life as passionately as he practices law, an avid collector of motorcycles and fine art.
