BREACH OF CONTRACT
When a party enters into a contract and fails to perform the duties required under the agreement, there is a breach of contract. In determining the best course of action for your case, we will provide advice on the interpretation of the contract and examine the relevant legislation and precedents. If a breach of contract is established during the litigation process or in court, it may give rise to claims in damages (such as monetary compensation for loss), or under special circumstances the specific performance of the obligation in the agreement.

Those involved in the construction industry are continually faced with financial risks. They're often not paid in full or at all for the services and supply provided to real property. As a result of these risks, contractors and suppliers of work, services and supplies to real property in Ontario have been granted special protections by the Construction Lien Act (the "CLA"). The CLA sets out the rules as to who has a lien (security against the property) and the process by which lien claimants can enforce their various rights.
INJUNCTIONS - A CRITICAL LITIGATION TOOL
An injunction is a court order that prohibits a party named in the litigation process from performing a specific act or directs named parties to perform a specific act. It is commonly used by parties during the litigation process and in urgent cases before formal litigation proceedings begin to secure the litigation claim or to mitigate the hemorrhaging of company owned assets by reckless parties such as directors or partners. This critical litigation order of the court can be utilized in a variety of scenarios including: 1) A Mareva order to temporarily put a ‘freeze’ on a Defendant’s Assets to prevent the Defendant from escaping from potential judgement by disposing of, hiding or, removing its assets from the jurisdiction; 2) Certificate of Pending Litigation; 3) Interim Recovery & Possession of Personal Property; 4) Anton Pillar Orders.
