Civil Litigation Lawyers in Ottawa, Kingston, North Bay and Across Eastern Ontario
Litigation is a daunting prospect, often requiring a significant financial and time commitment. Whether you are initiating or responding to a civil litigation action, it is important to set yourself up for success by retaining a skilled litigator who will provide practical and effective advice based on years of experience.
At Tierney Stauffer LLP, our civil litigation lawyers are respected for the professional, tenacious, and assertive approach they take with files. They are experienced in a wide variety of litigation matters and skilled in the resolution of complex problems. Our lawyers work closely with our clients to understand the scope of their legal issues and to determine the most effective options for resolution. Whether we are serving a large company or an individual, and whether the matter is simple or complex, our litigation group strives to find practical solutions and to provide services that are professional, courteous and responsive.
Helping Clients Secure the Results They Need
Given how long litigation can take to work its way through the courts, many clients eventually suffer from what we refer to as ‘litigation fatigue’, and just want their matter to end quickly. While we certainly always strive to resolve a matter efficiently whenever we can, we also take a unique approach to litigation to ensure our clients do not short-change themselves by rushing the process. Particularly with respect to personal injury matters, a ‘quick’ resolution may not be best. The final judgment may need to finance expensive medical care or equipment for the rest of our client’s life, and we want to ensure they are adequately provided for, so they don’t have to worry about finances in the future and can instead focus on their health and recovery.
Skilled Litigators Advocating for Clients at Trials, Administrative Proceedings and all methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution
The priority of our civil litigators is to enable our clients to achieve a successful resolution in a timely and cost-effective manner. Our lawyers’ extensive litigation experience allows us to represent our clients in any court or administrative proceeding. Our lawyers are also experienced in the use of alternative dispute resolution techniques including mediation and arbitration and employ all of the strategies and processes at our disposal at each stage of a client’s case to achieve a successful resolution.
However, where the interests of our clients cannot be achieved through a negotiated resolution, our litigators are intelligent and effective advocates regardless of the forum.
