Commercial Litigation & Dispute Resolution
Our lawyers have extensive experience handling matters that deal with breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duties, professional negligence, wrongful dissmissal, negligent misrepresentation, defamation, debt collection, fraudulent conveyance, shareholder and partnership disputes, construction disputes, product liability, landlord/tenant disputes, and land-based disputes.
Furthermore, our lawyers also have experience dealing with CCAA/Bankruptcy/Receivership proceedings, both in Canada and in the US.
We understand that litigation can be expensive and for some cases it does not make any sense because the cost of a lenghty litigation can overshadow the Damages/Loss. As such, with almost every commercial dispute, our initial approach is to find a way to resolve the dispute quickly and cost effectively without having to go through the formal litigation process.
We pride ourselves on finding practical solutions that will satisfy all stakeholders. Often we may be able to steer the case to mediation, which can be a very cost effective way to resolve even the most complex business disputes.
However, if the more practical approach does not work, we are ready to litigate your case. With significant courtroom experience, our lawyers will not hesitate to take the case all the way to trial and have had success doing so.
We usually charge an hourly fee for our services but, upon request, we can also provide you with alternative fee arrangements such as flat fee or block billing. Furthermore, for some cases, especially those that deal with professional negligence, we may be able to offer a contingency fee arrangement.
Rest assured, no matter what arrangement is agreed upon, we will do everything that we can to keep you apprised of your dispute/litigation as it progresses, and can also provide you with a estimated budget so that you know what to expect.
We provide a free initial consultation of up to an hour (depending on the complexity of your case) to assess the issues that you are dealing with and to discuss your options going forward.
