Did you know?

We have acted for clients before all levels of court in Ontario and been involved in a number of landmark and reported cases. Click below to learn more about some of our notable cases. 

Civil & Commercial Litigation

Abrahams LLP has a broad-based litigation practice. We take a creative client-focused approach to litigation, working with illustrative advocacy and industry experts in order to find the most expeditious and least expensive route to dispute resolution. 

We have helped clients navigate the complex litigation process, settled many cases out of court and taken matters down to Small Claims Court if in the best interests of the client. On the other hand, if going to higher level courts is required, we have represented clients at all levels of the provincial court system, such as Ontario Superior Court, Divisional Court and the Ontario Court of Appeal. Our firm has acted on behalf of entrepreneurial professionals at specially-constituted administrative tribunals and specialized courts such as the Toronto Commercial List and Estates Court.

In this capacity, we have acted for entrepreneurs in the full spectrum of the business life cycle, from start-ups to some of the world’s largest manufacturing companies in cases of both national and international dimension.  Our cases have been reported in media outlets as diverse as the Toronto Star and Bloomberg.

We understand the rigour, emotion, and patience involved in litigious matters and look to resolve cases in a manner that is efficient and effective.

We focus primarily on commercial and tort litigation.

Commercial Litigation

In our commercial practice, we have assisted clients who are engaged in plain vanilla commercial disputes, in defence of disputes, in counterclaims and third-party claims. 

We have settled commercial cases on simple demand letters or soon after issuance of a claim and have the knowledge, resilience and expertise to take cases through discoveries and into trial (although the vast majority of our cases settle before trial). 

We have done several cases for entrepreneurs who are aggressively seeking to recover investment funds that have been misused or otherwise fraudulently obtained.

Tort Litigation

In our tort practice, we have assisted clients who have suffered economic injury or personal injury as a result of the actions of third parties.  In this capacity, we have acted as co-counsel with Russ Howe of Boland Howe LLP, the former president of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association and H.A. Fancy, author of Demonstrative Advocacy and counsel in a class action against the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation.
