The Insurance Group acts for insurers, claimants and intermediaries on a wide variety of insurance coverage and liability assignments. Our lawyers will strategically assess your case to ensure that any unique issues are identified in the early stages so that good cases may be successfully defended or prosecuted, and weak cases effectively and quickly settled. Many of our group members are leaders in emerging areas such as "bad faith", aggravated and punitive damages, and damages for mental distress, providing legal updates and seminars on topics such as extracontractual obligations relating to the conduct of claims by insurers and counsel. We have experience with the highly technical area of subrogation and are capable of handling significant and multi-party losses (including those related to fire, property, construction, oil and gas, commercial and industrial operations, transportation and utilities).
Our extensive experience in the trial and appellate courts, including the Supreme Court of Canada, enables us to confidently and skillfully litigate all types of cases (large and small) in a cost-effective manner. Should dispute resolution be appropriate, we have the competency and experience to understand the issues and achieve the results you desire through mediation and negotiation.
