Firm ProfileAffleck Greene McMurtry LLP is one of the most recognized counsel firms in Toronto. We practise commercial litigation and competition law. As barristers, our expertise is advocacy. We have particular expertise in securities litigation, disputes within companies (such as oppression), contractual disputes, product liability, construction law, commercial fraud claims, insurance defence (fidelity, L & M, Performance Bonds), class action defence and proceedings and inquiries under the Competition Act. We provide practical advice focused on our clients' goals and work towards achieving those goals in the most cost-effective way. While that outcome is usually reached through negotiation, we pride ourselves on our experience and skills in the courtroom. We believe that lawyers who are known to have the experience, confidence, and ability to take a case to trial achieve better results, even without a trial. Litigation is expensive. We keep the expenses down by staffing files conservatively, focusing on what needs to be done to win the case, charging hourly rates that are somewhat lower than large firms, and, in appropriate cases, alternative fee structures.
