Experienced Toronto Civil Litigation Lawyers

Exceptional dispute resolution and litigation services.

Civil Litigation field is extremely complex. Not only qualified civil litigator has the basic knowledge of the entire legal framework, but a lawyer practising in a certain area has thorough expertise of that domain area as well.

More importantly, professional litigators have an inside-out knowledge and application of Rules of Civil Procedures that are directly relevant to the area they practice in: i.e. on how to initiate lawsuits; tactics and expertise on how to handle the process and phases of the case; how to "short-circuit" opposing counsel with the "right" motions; and, certainly, how to surpise and impress judges with quality factums and preparation for the case. Accordingly, simply put: professional litigators are experts on how to apply all that knowledge strategically due to their prior experience that litigators attained through a numerous lawsuits over and over, again and again.

Therefore, and in order to win cases on behalf of clients, successful litigators always put a very heavy emphasis on strong negotiation skills, and, so to say, on the “knowledge of the Courts”, i.e. the skills on how to advance the case and argue it in front of the judge (to make sure that the Judge favours our point), how to put a pressure (when necessary) on the other side in order to compell them to settle "unwinnable" cases, or, in the alternative, how to make sure that the matter gets, indeed, advanced to the trial, so the client obtains more favourable award or judgement as a result.

While some individuals feel that they can handle civil litigation themselves, working without a lawyer can be incredibly complicated, unproductive and impractical. The legal system is not designed to be easily understood, and small mistakes can have huge implications. It takes years and years even for a very smart lawyers to forge their craft in order to become not only very-very good at what they do but also make other side wanting to settle (when meeting the lawyer they hard fought before and maybe lost to the last time).

Finally, errors in court filing, bad negotiation strategy, and a poor understanding of the law are all mistakes that we see over and over that self-represented litigants come back to us asking to fix these for them and that now results in a a case set back for months (if not even years) to correct and go back on proper track.

All that while Litigation can be very aggressive, definitely adversarial (as the other party definitely might bring up a good fight), and so is expensive as a result, so it is very important to have a skilled advocate in your corner from the beginning right to the very end.
