Business Dispute FAQ

Whether it is an unpaid invoice for a service rendered or a product sold, when an individual owes you money you can take them to court either for breaking a contract (if one exists) or for unjust enrichment.

Exactly which court to take them to will depend on the amount of money owing. As of January 2020, the Small Claims Court in Ontario has jurisdiction to hear matters involving $35,000.00 or less. For amounts greater than $35,000.00, you can proceed in the Superior Court of Justice.

Powell Litigation regularly represents its clients in both the Small Claims Court and the Superior Court of Justice. For more information, call us today at (647) 360-7147.

It often takes people by surprise that you only have so much time before you have to sue someone. If you wait too long, your case will be thrown out. These are known as limitation periods. Generally speaking, in Ontario you have two years from the day you knew or ought to have known that you had a claim to commence a proceeding in court.

There are exceptions to this rule and there times when the two-year period can be extended. For more information, give us a call today at (647) 360-7147.

At Last A Law Firm With the Expertise You Need

At a Price You Can Afford

 

Do you want to know a secret about why large law firms in Toronto are so outrageously expensive? Well, for starters, they have massive overhead. Their offices are in the financial district which has the highest commercial rents in the entire province. Do you benefit at all from them having those really nice offices? Nope. Not at all. Lawyers argue their cases at court, not at their offices, so it doesn’t matter whether their offices are in overpriced steel and glass towers downtown or in a nice professional building in North York like us.

We are a young legal team, yet we have more courtroom experience than most lawyers who have been practising for decades. At the end of the day, what matters is the experience and skill that your lawyer brings to the table. What you really need is a lawyer who is as comfortable in the courtroom as they are in their own living room. The only way to get that level of comfort is by going to court. A lot. And that is exactly what you can expect from your Toronto civil litigation lawyer at Powell Litigation.

You’ll be shocked by this. At a recent trial, I was facing off against a lawyer who has literally been practising law since I was born. He did a fine job (although we ended up winning the trial and getting $170,117.84 for our client. You can read the decision here). What was shocking was that this lawyer confided in me that, after decades of practising law, this was his very first trial! Can you imagine that?

To get a lawyer with the courtroom experience you need to win your case, call us today at (647) 360-7147.
