General Litigation

Whether you are contemplating a lawsuit or being sued, you don’t want to waste your time in court. However, if a situation arises where you have to, you can count on our Litigation team to provide vigorous advocacy through court or alternative dispute resolution.

Areas of General Litigation

Commercial and Civil

Our litigation team has extensive experience in both commercial and civil disputes. These disputes arise between two or more individuals and/or businesses and often require a vigorous defense.


Whether you are a homeowner, property manager, landlord, tenant, or developer- our teams will advocate for you to resolve your property dispute.

Personal Injury and Negligence Claims

Going to court can be intimidating, stressful, and time consuming. We get it, but if you have been impacted by a personal injury, disability, or other loss, you may be eligible for compensation.

Insurance Defence​

Our Litigation team provides a vigorous and result-driven defence in insurance litigation. We understand that your time is money and we take pride in our ability to quickly and efficiently navigate such complex insurance matters on your behalf.
