The firm continues its longstanding representation of property and casualty insurers, and, on occasion, has represented insureds in direct first party claims against their insurers.
Human rights issues, complaints and adjudications for and in front of the Human Rights Commission, as well as involvement in respectful workplace issues, have become a common source of work for one of our partners.
Securities litigation and securities regulation matters, together with lawsuits over the misappropriation of funds by financial advisors, registered brokers and the like, have also involved members of the firm.
The firm has significant experience in emergency applications such as all types of applications for interlocutory injunctions (including Mareva and Anton Pillar) and has the capacity to act immediately in such matters.
