Great lawyers give their best strategic intelligent advice every time. We do this every day.

We are advocates of choice, exemplifying the proud traditions of our profession. Our intelligence, vigor and responsible approach have resulted in numerous and important trial, appellate and arbitral successes, and managed risk at mediation.

We are committed to excellence and success in every aspect of our practice.

We are a prominent insurance litigation Firm founded in 1994, representing insurers and individuals across Ontario and the United States, from our offices in Toronto, Whitby and Ottawa.

We are very proud to have been chosen by our peers as a Top 10 Insurance Defence Boutique Law Firm for 2015-2016 and 2017-2018.

We litigate, negotiate and mediate motor vehicle tort and accident benefit claims, including catastrophic, priority and loss transfer disputes, and occupiers’ and product liability matters. We assist our insurer clients develop an overall litigation strategy and manage risk. We also represent seriously injured people.

The Firm’s experience and tactical approach allows it to effectively represent class action plaintiffs. Our clients benefit from the advancement of their cases which has lead to the growth of the law in this important area of our civil justice system.

The privilege of helping other lawyers with their cases and being called upon to mediate insurance disputes for other litigants is rewarding.

Dedication to education is exemplified by publication and teaching at Universities, Colleges, and other organizations. We learn by educating. We are better lawyers because of it. Catherine Zingg authors and edits the periodically revised Accident Benefits in Ontario (originally authored by James Flaherty) published by Canada Law Book, and writes the monthly Accident Benefits Newsletter widely read in the insurance industry.

In the proud tradition of our profession, we volunteer on Boards and organizations involving our communities and the profession. Our contribution to making things better is our reward.
