SJL’s litigation lawyers advocate for clients and guide them through complex and stressful litigation matters. Drawing on the art of persuasion, our lawyers seek to resolve matters in a timely and cost-effective manner. Options and realistic expectations are set from the outset so clients can determine the best course forward and decide on next steps without taking a leap of faith. If a matter can be resolved prior to getting to court, our lawyers will look for ways for clients to ensure a beneficial settlement through alternative dispute resolution. Sometimes, a court, tribunal or arbitrator is the only path to resolve a dispute and SJL’s litigators are experienced to ensure a client’s case is put forward strategically and effectively.
Our litigation team has argued cases in all levels of Ontario courts including, the Superior Court of Justice, the Divisional Court and the Court of Appeal.
