Civil litigation is a complex creature involving a significant procedural process that includes some mandatory steps, such as full disclosure of documentation in a documentary and testamentary capacity, mandatory mediation, and mandatory pre-trials, among some of those steps. It is always within the parties' grasp to try and settle outside of court and negotiate a settlement that will leave both parties satisfied that they received a fair bargain. Mediation is an imperative step in any litigation and our team has experience dealing with institutional defendants, and government defendants in past cases.

Appellate work - do you want to appeal a decision that you received?
Appeals are complicated creatures. In the common law, you can appeal your case if there was an error of law or error of fact in the judicial determination of the case of first instance. Appeals are common, but can be costly if not adjudicated properly and effectively. Our team has a proven track record of providing meticulous legal research and argument construction after first determining whether an error of law has been made, or on the face of it, an error of fact or in the evaluation of the evidence. Some times, even where there are errors, those may be so trivial so as to not warrant an appeal due to the cost and complexity; however, where an appeal is warranted, we will inform you, advise you and assist you in navigating the process to achieve a just result and ensure that your rights are protected in line with the law. In many cases, the appeal courts must first grant leave to appeal which involves a process of applying to the court to request this leave. We have over seven years experience working on appellate cases that have reached the Federal Court of Appeal and the Ontario Court of Appeal multiple times on procedural law, substantive law and evidentiary errors of law.
