Dispute Resolution and

Representing your best interests

Litigation is the legal term for when a dispute is heard before the Courts. It can be intimidating, stressful, time-consuming and costly—and not always necessary.

Sicotte Guilbault’s legal team will work with you to determine the most practical, cost-efficient and timely path to resolution and whenever possible, advise on out-of-court settlements that leave nothing to chance and reduce the cost of resolving the dispute. When that’s not possible and you need the assistance of the Courts, we’ll be there with you every step of the way, with honest, transparent and knowledgably advice. Whatever the issue, you can depend on our Dispute Resolution and Litigation team to provide you with a solution that leads to the quickest settlement, in, or outside, the Judicial Courts of Ontario.

A business can run into a wide range of legal issues, including shareholder disputes, breached agreements or customer disputes. Corporate litigation lawyers from our business law practice can represent your business and enforce contractual obligations when necessary.

Our litigation services can help you avoid contract components that can trigger future problems and enforce your position throughout disputes, negotiations and lawsuits.

Whether in accordance with a will or laws dealing with estates of individuals who die intestate, we can assist the executor in administering the estate, satisfy all legal requirements and in the event of a conflict, advocate to ensure our client’s wishes are carried out.
