From property and contract disputes to claims for breach of trust and professional negligence, from human rights and sexual assault claims to estate disputes, and from insurance, nuisance, and property damage claims to appearances before regulatory tribunals, Siskinds’ Civil Litigation Lawyers bring to the table an impressive breadth of expertise and experience. Claims for breach of privacy, property damage, product liability, misrepresentation, unjust enrichment, wrongful dismissal, and breach of fiduciary duty are all covered by our team of Civil Litigation Lawyers, who have appeared in all levels of court in Ontario, from Provincial Offences Court to the Court of Appeal, as well as the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal and numerous regulatory tribunals.

We take the difficult cases. We represent clients throughout Ontario, and across Canada and the United States. Often, we are assisting clients being sued for assault or facing charges before disciplinary tribunals, or defending them in relation to claims for negligence, vicarious liability, breach of contract and various uninsured claims. We handle claims involving mental competence, the validity and interpretation of Wills, and appeals of cases that have been lost by other lawyers.

We are recognized by judges, lawyers, and other professionals, as lawyers who are resourceful, hard-working, and knowledgeable. We are recognized as caring and sensitive to our clients’ needs.

As the COO of a midsize company I contacted Siskinds with regards to an intricate and somewhat challenging H.R. issue, and we were directed to Christopher Sinal. Upon review of this complex situation, his in depth knowledge of H.R. law allowed us to construct a clear and strategic plan. Phone calls and email enquiries were dealt with efficiently and timely. Chris displayed his competency and confidence in our final negotiations to bring closure to the case. We appreciate his preparedness and professionalism in representing our firm. - B.D.

Maciek [Piekosz] has been a great help and very accommodating since day one. He relays information in an understandable and clear manner. All correspondence with both him as well as other Siskinds personnel has been nothing but smooth and attentive. Thank you. - M.D.

I felt really safe knowing you [Daniel Hynes] were looking after my interests. I felt like you had my back. You were very professional, kind and caring, and I was very happy with how you handled everything.  –G.A.
