Insurance Law

Serving Ontario insurers since 1979.

Our insurance law team represents insurers and their insureds by handling claims in a pragmatic, efficient, and professional manner.

We are leaders in Ontario insurance defence litigation, which is the backbone of our litigation practice.

We have extensive experience in professional liability, bodily injury, accident benefits, subrogation, construction, coverage-loss, and property-loss cases. We are trusted by insurers province wide, and we have successfully reduced exposure to them in several precedent-setting cases.

Insurers depend on us to quickly and precisely analyze the risks associated with their cases. Our lawyers are proactive and reach timely resolutions when possible; however, when resolution is not possible, our legal team offers a depth of courtroom experience that is rivalled by few firms across Ontario, with a record of more than 300 trials and appeals.

Outside the courtroom, our lawyers have conducted thousands of mediations, negotiated settlements and many arbitrations.

Our team of insurance lawyers are supported by experienced paralegals, law clerks, and assistants who assist our insurance clients in a cost-sensitive and timely manner.
