Commercial Litigation

Print Expertise

Torkin Manes’ Commercial Litigation team has a superior reputation for strategically advocating on behalf of clients when confronted with any type of commercial-related dispute. At the outset of each matter, we assess our clients’ businesses and the framework of their unique circumstances. This enables us to craft a strategy that accounts for the legal and practical considerations we need to employ to advance our clients’ matters effectively. Prioritizing our clients' best interests, we combine our legal knowledge and sound judgment to ensure control at every step, ensuring risks are understood and minimized while chances for success are maximized.

With deep bench strength, we can handle any complex, high stakes matter including shareholder and partnership disputes, temporary and permanent injunctions, securities litigation, construction litigation, receiver/manager applications, breach of contract lawsuits, franchise disputes, bank and debtor/creditor litigation, real estate disputes, mortgage enforcement, class actions and commercial arbitrations.

Our team works closely with our corporate, real estate, tax, trusts & estates and family law lawyers when their clients’ matters involve disputes. We also act for many international clients with business interests in Canada and Canadian clients with business interests elsewhere. When clients require legal services in other jurisdictions, we leverage our affiliation with Meritas, a global alliance of leading independent law firms, to facilitate the procurement of top-tier legal service and counsel worldwide.

As recognized leaders in their field, our litigators have earned the trust and respect of not only opposing counsel and the judiciary, but also our clients, many with whom we have built established, long-standing relationships. While we are prepared to take each and every case to court, our litigators help clients avoid litigation and channel their efforts on obtaining a negotiated resolution, provided it achieves the most desirable results for our clients in terms of cost, human investment and time.
