Our lawyers have a wealth of experience in the following areas:
We act for corporations and individuals involved in all manner of business disputes including partnership disputes, contract claims, fraud matters and construction disputes. Our experienced lawyers enjoy a reputation for integrity, timeliness, and cost-effective dispute resolution.
Subrogation requires a distinct and different skill set from the defence of liability, coverage or property claims. Our firm has a strong track record in advancing subrogated claims on behalf of its clients, bringing a practical and common-sense approach to subrogation.
Commercial General Liability Claims
We defend your policy-holders in commercial general liability claims spanning a wide variety of areas, including fire losses, oil spills and construction losses. Claims of this nature require significant technical skills over a broad range of losses. We have the experience and expertise to manage claims of this nature, as well as a deep bench of experts to call on as needed.
Bodily Injury Litigation
Our lawyers have experience in all aspects of motor vehicle bodily injury litigation in Ontario. We have a thorough understanding of the threshold for pain and suffering damages in Ontario, the large body of law interpreting the threshold over the last twenty years and the interplay between first- and third-party compensation systems. We work with recognized science and medical experts to obtain opinion evidence where necessary and provide strategic counsel to help our clients manage risk.
We have experience acting as coverage counsel for both insurers and corporate policyholders. We provide coverage opinions with respect to a variety of types of insurance coverage, including liability, property, errors and omissions, automobile, and fidelity bonds. We have also litigated insurance coverage cases at the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and Ontario Court of Appeal, addressing a diverse range of coverage issues. Our coverage lawyers regularly publish and speak on the interpretation of insurance policies.
Priority and Loss Transfer Disputes
Ontario’s Insurance Act contains priority and loss transfer rules that address which insurer is responsible for paying first party benefits to a claimant in any given case. Disputes between insurers are resolved through private arbitrations pursuant to the Arbitration Act, 1991. This is an active area of insurance-related litigation unique to Ontario and our lawyers have expertise and a strong track record in this area.
