In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as public health measures to curb the spread of the virus are being implemented, we have ensured that our lawyers and staff have the tools and resources to work remotely. We have taken steps to guarantee that the timeliness and quality of our work remain unaffected and we remain fully accessible and committed to serving our clients as usual. In lieu of in-person meetings, we are encouraging our existing and potential clients to meet with us via video conferencing on Zoom and Google Hangouts or by telephone.

We wish you all health and strength during this challenging time.

Complainants often name directors and officers of corporations in lawsuits. However, it is only legally justified in relatively narrow circumstances the most common of which include oppression and fraud. Directors and officers may also face personal liability for certain debts of a corporation including some types of tax debts and, in some circumstances, unpaid wages.

Our firm regularly acts for and against directors and officers of corporations. We have successfully held directors and officers liable in oppression and other claims including most recently before the Court of Appeal of Ontario. We have also successfully acted for directors and officers in defending personal claims and in having such claims struck out early in proceedings.
