We operate in a client-centric universe
To us, strong, lasting and productive client relationships are built on candor and directness. We always make the best use of your time and resources. We know your time is valuable so we get to the point without delay when providing opinions on coverage and recommended defence strategies. All communication and interaction is determined by your needs and priorities. We recognize your need for efficiency in terms of providing quality legal services and reduced legal costs. As a client of Lerners, you will always be fully informed but never bogged down with unnecessary and excessive paperwork, reports and meetings.
A seasoned team with a single-minded focus
Your satisfaction is important to us. The Lerners Insurance Defence Group is a team of 30+ seasoned lawyers whose focus is to provide exceptional counsel to insurance companies. We will always pursue the best possible outcome and we will only be satisfied when it is achieved.
Thought leaders in a complex and changing industry
We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of innovation. Members of our team regularly participate in seminars and give presentations at industry events on thought-provoking developments in the law as well as novel defence strategies. Articles authored by Lerners lawyers on the important nuances of Ontario insurance law as well as interpretations of coverage often appear in leading trade publications. And we are especially proud of our regular involvement in high profile and precedent-setting cases that lead to positive industry-wide change.
At Lerners, when you retain one of us, you get all of us
Behind every lawyer works a team of skilled and dedicated staff members. They attend to every detail from filing court documents to using the latest technology and systems to manage and organize mountains of information. We are a family in the insurance defence group and you will find from your interactions with our staff, that they care about meeting your needs as much as our lawyers do.
Also, should the need arise, we can easily draw upon the skills and expertise of our colleagues who specialize in other areas of law, such as those who practice in Business Law, Health Law, and Commercial Litigation.
And on those rare occasions when there is good reason to disagree with the court’s decision, the Lerners Appellate Group can launch or respond to an appeal on your behalf. Our lawyers will argue the appeal all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada if necessary.
