Banking Litigation

Our banking litigation team prides itself on its knowledge, expertise and extensive practical experience. We represent financial institutions with respect to enforcing secured loans, collecting unsecured loans, mortgage enforcement proceedings, enforcing guarantees and recovering of those accounts known as “special loans” as a result of their complex nature.

Services

It would be nearly impossible to list all the issues which can arise in the context of banking litigation and which our team of lawyers are qualified to handle. Issues which frequently arise include:

  • Formulating strategies to minimize lender’s liability risks in insolvency and work out situations;
  • Resolving priority issues among secured creditors with both the provincial and federal Crown;
  • Assessing a financial institution’s liabilities as constructive trustee; and
  • Dealing with a financial institution’s potential exposure for conversion of cheques.

Whatever your needs, we’re here to provide you with the best possible service and advice.

Experience

Our team of lawyers continuously monitor and stay abreast of all new developments in the areas of loan defence and cause of action against financial institutions in order to ensure continued effective representation.

Over the years, we have advised and represented a number of lending institutions and, when necessary, have acted for them at trial and on appeal.
