Resolving Civil Disputes in Durham Region

Our Civil Litigation Lawyers focus on cost-effective, fair resolution of our clients' disputes.

For most of our clients, the priority is not necessarily having their day in Court or achieving vindication. For most, the priority is simply resolving their legal difficulty in the most cost-efficient and effective manner.

We will take the time to discuss your situation with you to discover what approach is likely to give you the best resolution. We generally encourage negotiation and cooperative solutions, particularly if the other party in your dispute is somebody with whom you may have to interact after the lawsuit is done, such as an Employee, family member or business partner.

We also know that a negotiated resolution tends to be more cost-effective and timely than going to Court.

Unfortunately, not every disagreement can be resolved outside of the Courts. When necessary, we are willing and able to vigorously advocate on your behalf in Court.

Righting Wrongs in Every Practice Area

Our experienced Litigators handle disputes in a number of areas, including:

  • Business: These include Breach of Contract, shareholder disputes and other disputes that may arise in the course of doing business.
  • Employment: This includes wrongful dismissal, severance packages and severance pay, constructive dismissal, human rights complaints, harassment and bullying, and health and safety issues. We also assist in the review of Employment Contracts.
  • Estates: Our Estate litigation practice can help you resolve challenges to Wills, beneficiary disputes and challenges relating to Estate Trustees and Executors.
  • Small Claims: If you find yourself in a dispute where the monetary values are less than $25,000, we can help you to succeed with a Small Claims Court proceeding.
  • Real Estate: Sometimes the purchase or sale of a home results in a misunderstanding or dispute after the completion of the transaction. If something has gone wrong in a Real Estate transaction, we will advocate on your behalf in Court.

A surprising proportion of our clients are involved in disputes that are resolved not in the regular Court system but before various administrative bodies. Our experience and skill before administrative tribunals in these matters can be of great assistance to you.
