Speak with a Specialized Wills & Estate Planning Lawyer
If you find yourself in the midst of legal issues after a loved one’s passing, or you are dealing with someone’s capacity to manage finances or their personal care, consider giving one of our estate litigation lawyers a call. Any one of them will be able to provide some practical advice to assist you through this stressful period.
It all started with two brothers and one simple truth.
In 1929, Mayer Lerner opened the doors to his law firm. Joined by his brother Sam in 1939, they faithfully applied the philosophy that “no matter who our clients are, each and every one deserves the best representation possible.” Today, over 85 years later, this simple truth is still at the heart of our values.
Two distinct offices… one impressive firm.
Lerners LLP has grown to become one of Ontario’s largest firms with offices in London and Toronto. In 2011 and in 2013 to 2015, Lerners has been ranked as one of Ontario’s Top 10 Regional Firms by peers, colleagues and clients, in an annual survey conducted by Canadian Lawyer.
The original Lerners office, in London, has always been a full-service shop. The largest of its kind in southwestern Ontario, it offers outstanding skill and vast experience in a variety of practice areas under one roof.
The Toronto office, opened in 1987, focuses on litigation and is now one of the city’s largest litigation boutiques. In fact, the Toronto arm of the firm has been identified by Canadian Lawyer magazine as one of Canada’s Top 10 Litigation Boutiques.
While each office possesses its own unique strengths, we work closely together for the benefit of all our clients. In total, over 100 highly skilled and experienced lawyers, with the help of more than 200 dedicated support staff, share expertise and resources to deliver exceptional client service.
Experience is important,
but it’s how you put your experience into practice that really matters.
There is no shortage of experience available today. There are plenty of lawyers who can, quite rightly, describe themselves as being experienced, tough, tenacious and uncompromising.
But if we’ve learned anything in more than 80 years of successful client service and representation, it’s that experience will only take you so far towards building trust and rapport with a client. Our fundamental obligation is to first listen and understand. Only after we’ve done that can we apply our experience to your advantage.
Here’s what you can expect if you choose Lerners:
- We will listen until you are sure we’ve heard you.
- We will explain all your options until you say you understand them.
- We will do everything we say we will do.
- We will not waste your time or your money.
Recommended, referred, consulted and recognized
as one of Ontario’s top firms.

Other lawyers regularly seek our counsel in specialized areas of expertise where we excel because they know they can trust us to be thoroughly professional and respectful of their client relationships.

Lerners lawyers are repeatedly listed in Canadian professional directories, such as Lexpert and The Best Lawyers in Canada, as leaders in their practice areas. Inclusion in these prestigious publications is based solely on the vote of peers.
