A superior litigator in all aspects of trial advocacy, Carey is adept at complex commercial litigation, especially in the areas of fraud, breach of securities law, contractual claims and misrepresentation. Further, his experience in criminal law gives him a distinct advantage in cases where criminal charges are brought in conjunction with corporate misdoings.
Major corporate clients in the telecommunications, waste management, securities and media sectors, among others, value Carey’s tenacious will to win and his relentless focus on meeting their objectives.
In 2003-2004, he successfully litigated what stands today as the leading case on securities fraud in British Columbia. Carey is frequently asked to advise boards of directors on litigation strategy and directors and officers’ liability.

His first case, shortly after being called to the Bar in British Columbia obtained a successful finding of refugee status for a couple accused of counter-revolutionary activities by a foreign government.
Carey has represented clients at all levels of court and before an array of administrative boards and tribunals, including the British Columbia Securities Commission, Hearing Panels of the Canadian Venture Exchange, the College of Pharmacists and the Workers Compensation Board.
