Civil Litigation

Advancing Your Interests

Polak McKay & Hawkshaw maintains a civil litigation practice that is focused on insurance claims, negligence and contract disputes, among other matters. Our civil litigation lawyers provide clients with the honest, upfront advice they need to make choices about their legal rights and obligations. When a client chooses to pursue litigation or must defend against a claim, our representation is hands-on and strategic, with client success as the ultimate goal.

In addition to our history of client representation at all levels of Ontario courts, we attend board and tribunal hearings and participate in mediations and arbitrations. As a client-focused practice, we are, above all, committed to exploring legal options. Clients receive a full assessment of their rights and the risks that may accompany a proposed course of litigation.

Our civil litigation practice is therefore broad-based. A sampling of the kinds of litigation in which we participate includes:

  • Contract disputes
  • Negligence claims
  • Small claims court matters
  • Insurance disputes
  • Occupiers' liability and slip-and-fall claims
  • Dog fight claims
  • Personal injury claims
  • Leasing contract disputes
  • Real estate litigation
  • Estate litigation and will challenges
  • Passing of estate accounts
  • Construction liens
  • Municipal litigation, including zoning and land use

With the exception of motor vehicle accident claims, our lawyers can assist you with routine dispute resolution matters and complex litigation. With practice areas that also include corporate-commercial law and employment, we have the legal background and knowledge to take an in-depth and informed approach to any civil dispute.
