WHY LAWYERS, ACCOUNTANTS & CONSULTANTS REFER CASES TO US
WE STRICTLY RESPECT REFERRALS
For professionals referring cases to us, we strictly respect referrals, understand that this is your client you may be entrusting us with, and that your reputation is at stake as well as our own. If you have clients facing government problems with government or private parties that you can't resolve through persuasive dialogue, we're here to help. We've successfully appeared on cases as high as the Supreme Court of Canada, and work throughout Canada to help professionals help their own clients.
WE WORK COLLABORATIVELY
We're scrupulous in maintaining contact and collaborating with referring professionals where desired. Retainers either with the client directly or with a referring professional are possible. Involvement of the referring professional to the degree s/he and the client desires in each case is encouraged, including having us solely provide an opinion on a case, drafting the pleadings to be argued by referring counsel, having a co-counsel relationship, or having us handle all steps of the case with the results reverting back to the referring professional.
PROFESSIONALS REFER CASES TO US FOR OUR BILINGUAL LITIGATION EXPERTISE
Other professionals refer cases to us usually for the conduct of litigation such as consultant referrals for proceedings before the Immigration and Refugee Board or Federal Court, accountant referrals for proceedings before the Tax Court of Canada, solicitor referrals for trial litigation, and trial counsel referrals for appeals. We have broad experience successfully conducting hundreds of trials and appeals up to the level of the Supreme Court of Canada.
Professionals requiring bilingual French-English representation (perhaps because of French documents, witnesses testifying in French, or the other party proceeding in French) can trust the firm where all lawyers practice extensively in both French and English, and Karen Kernisant holds a degree in translation from the Université de Montréal. All French and English nuanced issues will get the attention they deserve, including the conduct of witness examinations and cross-examinations without use of translators, and preparation of appeal or other pleadings entirely in French if desired.
WE PROVIDE REFERRING PROFESSIONALS WITHOUT OBLIGATION INITIAL ASSESSMENTS
Contact us today for a without obligation chat about your client's situation and how a referral or collaborative relationship might work. We'll give you some initial impressions about prospects for success on appeal and a fee estimate, all of which you can discuss with your client or have us discuss directly if you prefer.
