APPELLATE LITIGATION

Legge & Legge's litigation group can provide appeal representation to its clients. Our lawyers have successfully acted for clients at the Ontario Court of Appeal, the Federal Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.

CLASS ACTIONS

Litigating class actions in Ontario involve complex rules, legislation and administrative handling. Legge & Legge lawyers have experience in successfully navigating the complex rules and administrative burdens of pursuing claims for class action claimants.

PERSONAL INJURY

When serious injuries occur that were caused or in part caused by the actions or omissions of another, the injured party should seek immediate legal advice. The litigation lawyers of Legge & Legge are well versed in the limitation periods that may otherwise prohibit a plaintiff from pursuing an otherwise valid legal remedy. Our lawyers discuss with the clients the strengths and weaknesses of their particular case and advise on how to proceed if the client and lawyer believe that it would be advisable to do so.
