Civil and Commercial Litigation

EXPERIENCED LITIGATORS IN TORONTO

We provide strategic counsel and advocacy for individuals and businesses in legal disputes. Our lawyers represent clients in a wide range of matters before various levels of courts and administrative tribunals in Ontario. We provide pragmatic, efficient, and effective representation. This sometimes means early settlement and sometimes means seeing unyielding advocacy right through trial.

CONTRACT DISPUTES

Whether you operate on a “hand-shake” basis or have negotiated an extensive contract that you wish to enforce, we have experience handling a wide variety of contractual disputes.

INCLUDING:

  • Confidentiality
  • Non-competition/non-solicitation
  • Good faith
  • Exclusivity provisions/Right of First Refusal
  • Misrepresentation
  • Intellectual Property
DEBT COLLECTION AND CIVIL ENFORCEMENT

Debt recovery is often one of the most uncomfortable parts of operating a business. Our lawyers have extensive experience collecting debts for our clients as well as defending claims made by creditors. We understand the difficulties that come from not being paid for work that you have completed, or the frustration of enforcing a judgment or court order which you have already obtained. Our lawyers will implement cost-effective enforcement solutions to ensure that you get paid the compensation you are owed.

COMMON TYPES OF ENFORCEMENT MEASURES INCLUDE:

  • Garnishments against wages
  • Bank accounts, accounts receivable
  • Seizure and sale of personal property or real estate
Real Estate Disputes

We deal with a broad spectrum of litigation issues that confront the real estate industry. Our lawyers have experience representing:

  • Buyers
  • Sellers
  • Landlords
  • Tenants
  • Owners
  • Contractors

WE DEAL WITH:

  • Mortgage foreclosures
  • Breaches of warranty
  • Liens
  • Renovation defects
  • Maintenance
  • Evictions
  • Purchase and sale agreement disputes
  • Mortgage financing disputes
Professional Negligence

Regulated professionals, including accountants, lawyers, and architects, are required to meet a “standard of care” in the provision of their professional services.

If you suffered damage as a result of having received poor professional services, the professional (and their insurance) may liable in negligence. We represent individuals and businesses who have been victims of professional negligence, whether through misrepresentation or an error or omission.

Injunctions

Our lawyers have experience representing clients in injunction proceedings and other urgent matters. We move quickly and strategically in order to properly respond to the shortened timeline of an injunction proceeding.

If you need an injunction or if you are responding to an injunction motion, we understand the importance of what is at stake – your ongoing business operations – and we will act swiftly to protect you.

Appeals of Small Claims Court Decisions

You can represent your corporation without a lawyer at the Small Claims Court. Corporations require legal representation at the appeal level though.

We represent many corporate clients in appeals of Small Claims Court decisions, whether they are seeking or are responding to such an appeal.

Court of Appeal and Divisional Court Decision

Our firm has argued appeals before the Court of Appeal of Ontario and the Divisional Court of Ontario. Appealing a lower court decision has strict timelines, so it is important to move quickly after you have received a decision.

We can help you assess whether an appeal has merit and what issues can be appealed. Whether you won or lost at trial or on a motion, we will give you the best chance to win the appeal.

Judicial Review of a Tribunal Decision

We provide assistance to clients seeking or responding to an application for judicial review of an administrative tribunal decision to the Divisional Court of Ontario.

WE COMMONLY DEAL WITH JUDICIAL REVIEWS OF DECISIONS MADE BY THE FOLLOWING TRIBUNALS:

  • Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario
  • Ontario Labour Relations Board
  • Landlord Tenant Board
