Appeals

Experienced Appellate Lawyer for Commercial & Family Law Appeals in Toronto

Clients that want to appeal a judicial decision need dedicated, tireless counsel with a track record of appellate success. Appellate litigation moves quickly, and demands a different type of advocacy, and therefore needs to be handled by a responsive lawyer with the right skill set.

Financial Litigation regularly represents clients facing civil appeals relating to complex commercial and family law cases. We hit the ground running, responding rapidly to meet procedural deadlines and develop effective strategies based on years of experience handling appellate matters.

Knowledgeable litigation counsel assisting with appeals at all stages

Our team provides insightful legal advice at all stages of the appeals process. We advise appellants, respondents, and intervenors in proceedings for leave to appeal, as well as throughout the appeal itself, and all related matters, including:

  • Stays of lower court orders pending appeal;
  • Intervening on appeals;
  • Extensions of time for appeal;
  • Motions to allow evidence that was not admitted at trial;
  • Preparing written submissions; and
  • Oral argument on appeal.

We often act on behalf of clients that were not represented at their initial hearing, and require a thorough review of the lower court’s decision and all relevant evidence.

If clients are unsure about whether to pursue an appeal, we can provide insight about possible courses of action, and the legal implications, so they can make an informed decision.

From the moment we are retained, our clients receive personal, one-on-one advice. We understand that a lot is on the line during an appeal, legally and financially, and we make every effort to keep clients informed and engaged in the process.
