WELCOME TO LENCZNER SLAGHT listen
We're* advocates, first and foremost. Our experience is why people turn to us in the most difficult situations. We have done tens of thousands of cases, thousands of hearings, and hundreds of trials and arbitrations for our clients. Our lawyers know the ins and outs of courtrooms, because they’ve spent thousands of days there, cross-examining witnesses and arguing points of law. We know courts, and courts know and trust us. Because of our experience and credibility with courts, our clients and competitors agree that our lawyers are undeniably expert§ litigators. We are advocates inside and outside of the courtroom. We complement that advocacy with a deep understanding of our clients. We represent a diverse roster of clients, from leading multinational technology and pharmaceutical companies, to some of Canada’s largest financial institutions, to professionals, executives, business owners and public figures. We know the law, but we also know our clients and how their disputes fit into their overall objectives and strategy. The bottom line is that we are experienced litigators who combine advocacy and subject-matter expertise. And we round that out with sound judgment. We are fearless yet professional, fierce yet fair. While our litigation is complex, our approach is precise. We distil complicated and abstract concepts into sharp, winning arguments. And that gets results. At Lenczner Slaght, litigation is our passion and our focus. You want us on your side..
