RETAINING A CORPORATE LAW FIRM
Lawyers for Corporate Disputes
Corporate disputes are inescapable. Sometimes they occur due to miscommunication, and at other times, they can occur due to one or more parties feeling that they have been wronged or mislead in some way. The parties to a corporate litigation dispute are often shareholders, stakeholders, board members, Directors, or Officers.
Assumptions are one of the biggest leading causes of disputes, and while they may seem trivial at the start of negotiating a contract or in closing a contract, they can lead to contentious legal battles further down the line. While most corporate disputes are settled prior to going to trial, there are certain instances that require the courts to rule on a dispute- particularly if the parties cannot agree on a settlement. As such, the lawyers at Tailor Law provide representation to both plaintiffs and defendants. Our corporate disputes involve shareholder disputes, mergers and acquisitions, hostile takeovers, Oppression Claims, Direct Actions and Derivative Actions.

Entity Selection, Formation and Maintenance
Depending on what your business goals are, your business structure will be one of the most important choices you make. The three (3) main business structures are sole proprietorships, partnerships, and corporations. In creating a sole proprietorship, losses can be deducted from personal income, which can result in tax savings, and with partnerships, profits are shared and partners collectively own all assets of the business, according to the terms of the partnership agreement. A corporation is considered a separate legal entity, and employees, directors, and shareholders are not personally liable for debts, lawsuits, assets, and taxes.
As each of these structures contains advantages and disadvantages, it is best to discuss your needs with our legal team prior to forming your company. Naming your business and considering what permits are required are some of the other choices that you will need to consider.
CORPORATE LITIGATION LAWYERS
The key pieces of legislation that govern corporate litigation in Ontario are the Ontario Business Corporations Act (OBCA), the Business Corporations Act, and the Canada Business Corporations Act (CBCA). While some offences and disputes are handled under common law, the majority of disputes will fall under these primary pieces of legislation.
Whether you’re already embroiled in the dispute process or requiring initial representation for your claim, Tailor Law uses cost-effective tools to avoid litigation and engage in alternative dispute resolution (ADR). As ADR is an effective way of minimizing costs, our legal representatives use aggressive and persuasive techniques to garner optimal settlements. Tailor law will provide representation during initial stages of the dispute, the ADR process, and any other part of the negotiations process.
We offer a wide range of solutions in the following areas:
- Breaches of Contract
