Areas of Law Description
Our practice areas include:
- Employment and Labor Law
Under the rubric of asset protection we include employment law for two very good reasons. Wrongful termination can have a devastating effect on savings and retirement plans, as those who are wronged may often be unemployed for some time and have to draw on accumulated assets. On the other side, mischievous claims by former employees can wreak havoc on modest size trading and professional firms.
- Cross Border Litigation
Our team understands cross-border litigation, and can easily swing into action with in local courts, and quickly bring in their overseas colleagues to assist as required. We have spent more than 30 years in litigating cases with an international element. Our firm practiced in exotic tax havens such as the Turks and Caicos Islands and Jersey, Channel Islands, as well as major financial centers such as London, England and Toronto.
To protect clients' assets from hostile spouses, clients and business partners we advise and structure domestically. We litigate court cases to protect clients from bankruptcy and to seek discharges, for those who are already bankrupt when they come to see us. We have been involved in many very large insolvencies, in which excellent results has been obtained for our clients.
We offer extensive expertise in a broad variety of Canadian immigration related issues. Specializing in most aspects of immigration law, we have experience assisting individuals with a number of applications to live temporarily and permanently in Canada. A large portion of our immigration practice is also devoted to business migration and assisting corporations.
- Estate Planning
A properly structured will is essential to ensure that those you wish to benefit are properly looked after with minimal disruption no matter what size your estate is. Will drafting is a key element of our estate planning practice. With the more complex estates, we bring to bear our significant experience in tax and liquidity issues.
- Matrimonial Law & Family Law
We understand that relationship breakdown is very stressful. We provide a friendly and approachable service to our clients and treat family law matters with the sensitivity and tact that they need. Every case is unique and we will work with you to tailor a solution that is right for you and your family.
- Professional Malpractice
Licensed professionals have undergone gruelling licensing procedures at the outset of their career and have complied with maintenance procedures throughout the duration of their career. Hard work and experience of the law firm make a satisfactory outcome for a client fighting to preserve his license and his reputation.
- Criminal Defense
We cover all areas of Criminal Law. Our policy is that the best defense is a good offense. Whether you or a loved one has just been arrested and need assistance to get out on bail or whether you’ve reached a speed-bump and want a fresh look at what your options are, we will meet your needs or assist in finding someone who can.
- Asset Protection
Asset Protection is the genesis of this law firm’s practice. Most people immediately think of asset protection trusts, situated in offshore tax havens. We do establish offshore trusts in many exotic locations, from The Cayman Islands to Switzerland and beyond. Also, we create International Business Corporations in these locations.
