INSURANCE LAW

Who Do We Represent?

We act for some of Canada’s largest property, casualty and special risk insurers as well as some of its smallest.  Some of our major clients have worked with us for over 20 years.  We are both litigation and coverage counsel.

What Do We Do Differently?

We understand the need for responsive, efficient and cost-effective service and we provide it.  We regularly exceed expectations and tailor our services to our client’s needs such as preferred e-billing programs.  We are early adopters of technology and work in a paperless environment.

In our litigation practice, we defend the following claims:

  • Property Damage & Subrogated Claims

    • Fire losses

    • Floods and water damage

    • Faulty construction

    • Oils spills and environmental claims

 

  • Farm Crop and Livestock Damage

  • Sports and Recreation Liability

  • Construction Litigation

  • Special Risk claims

  • Cyber Insurance

  • Defamation

  • Fraud

  • Personal Injury Claims

    • motor vehicle accidents (tort and accident benefits)

    • examinations under oath

    • priority disputes and loss transfer arbitrations

    • tavern and social host liability

    • occupiers’ liability

    • municipal liability

 

  • Product Liability

    • oil tanks and furnaces

    • elevators

    • motor vehicles

    • ladders, cables, tools and industrial equipment

We are also experienced Coverage Counsel.  Our lawyers have the specialized knowledge and analytical skills required to provide policy interpretation, complex coverage opinions and claims advice.  As litigators, we pursue and defend straightforward and complex coverage proceedings on behalf of insurers at all levels of court.  We also recognise that not all claims should be litigated and we are equally adept at negotiation and mediation. 

In our coverage practice, we provide opinions and advice regarding the following:

  • Automobile Insurance

  • Commercial General Liability

  • Homeowners’ Liability

  • Umbrella and Excess Liability​

  • Directors’ and Officers’ Liability

  • Professional Liability

  • Environmental Liability

  • Commercial Property and Business Interruption
