Getting Help Immediately to Prevent or Respond to Disputes
It may make the difference in your success as far as how soon you can retain an experienced legal team.
Understanding Commercial and Civil Litigation
Civil and commercial litigation refers to any legal dispute that is happening between two or more parties whether businesses or individuals. Some of the most common issues include mortgage enforcement, debt collection, shareholder and partnership disputes, contract disputes, construction disputes, real estate litigation, defamation and professional negligence.
The overall approach of our experienced Toronto civil and corporate commercial litigation lawyers at Diamond & Diamond is to resolve these matters quickly and cost effectively using an approach tailored to the litigation, business and personal needs of the client. We pride ourselves on taking a practical and holistic approach to litigation by getting to know our clients and understanding their needs, which often go above and beyond the legal issue in dispute.
We are also prepared to litigate your case where necessary. Our team relies on significant courtroom and trial experience and our senior litigator has more than 25 years of navigating complex cases in a courtroom. We also have extensive experience in preventing litigation, when we are retained early on in a dispute.
If you believe that a dispute is just unfolding, it can be a big mistake to assume you can correct it on your own. When brought in to your case sooner rather than later, we can help you take control of the situation as opposed to simply responding to a dispute that has already started.
Our strategy is developed not just on the relevant laws, but also on a number of other factors that affect the client. We also make every effort to inform our clients about what they can anticipate in terms of working with us. We do not use the traditional method of hourly billing that many law firms in Toronto use. This method of billing is often confusing for the client in addition to seeming unfair, uncertain or expensive.
2667010 Ontario Limited v. Sadozai Investment Group
Court File No:
This matter arose from a contentious partnership disagreement in the real estate sector. The partners created a corporation in order to operate a real estate brokerage. They executed some documents, but did not execute a shareholders agreement. The brokerage began to operate with each director bearing equal expenses and all assets split 50/50. A few months into the operation of the brokerage, each partner was dissatisfied with the way the brokerage was run. They decided to go their separate ways. One partner decided that he was not happy with the 50/50 split and asserted that he was owed more because he brought in more business.
After lengthy litigation that included an injunction and an interim motion, the Court heard the Application and decided that absent any evidence of an agreement to the contrary, each director was entitled to 50 per cent of the assets of the corporation upon dissolution. The Respondent was successful.Read the Endorsement
Our flat block fee or flat fee options are provided to our clients at every stage of a legal proceeding. In other instances, including allegations of professional negligence, we consider offering a contingency fee arrangement. In all of these situations, you’ll understand what to expect and how to best proceed to protect your underlying best interests. Unfortunately, commercial and cooperate litigation issues can unfold very quickly and can present a broad range of problems for every party involved in the dispute.
