Defend a real estate lawsuit involving an aborted closing


Have you recently been involved in a real estate deal that didn't quite go exactly as planned? Have you received a letter from a lawyer, or a document from the court, which indicates that a lawsuit has been filed against you, or is going to be filed against you?

Sellers and buyers have all kinds of reasons for backing out of a real estate deal. Some reasons are legal, and some are not. Sometimes these situations result in a lawsuit, so it's important to hire a good civil defence lawyer to respond to any such legal claims against you. A good defence can mean the difference of tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars.


Our lawyers charge hourly fees for this type of service. The hourly rate depends on the seniority of the lawyer assigned to the case. A non-refundable consultation fee is charged for your initial consultation, and retainer fees start at $5,000+HST. Court fees and other out-of-pocket expenses are additional.
