Toronto Business and Personal Litigation Lawyers

The business lawyers at Mills & Mills LLP understand that in most disputes, our clients would prefer to avoid potentially costly and time-consuming litigation. For this reason, we make every effort to resolve matters for our clients through alternative dispute resolution methods prior to taking matters before a court.

When court is unavoidable, our qualified and experienced litigation team works with clients to resolve matters efficiently and effectively, while making every effort to preserve any family or long-standing business relationships that may be involved. Our firm has over 130 years of experience successfully arguing cases before all levels of the Ontario and federal court systems, including the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada. We also have extensive experience bringing matters before various tribunals and other administrative bodies.

Our long-standing tradition is to team experienced litigators with new associates and students. Our clients benefit when practical experience, in-depth knowledge and credibility within the court system are paired with new energy and fresh perspective. Our lawyers also work to ensure that our clients are kept informed and involved throughout the litigation process, providing practical and honest advice about the various options available to them.

Whether acting for plaintiffs or defendants, much of our litigation work is done on behalf of clients whom we have assisted in other practice areas, such as real estate, business, estates or family law. In these circumstances, our clients’ initial lawyer will stay involved, in order to benefit from their in-depth knowledge of the matter at hand.
