How We
Can Help

Civil litigation involves a non-criminal legal dispute. Often, this means suing or being sued for a monetary sum. Our lawyers have spent years in the courtroom, including in the Ontario Court of Appeal, Ontario Superior Court of Justice, Small Claims Court, Court of Justice, and have appeared before various tribunals, including the License Appeal Tribunal, the Builder Arbitration Forum, and the Landlord and Tenant Board.

Mediation Session & Neutral Third-Party

Richardson Hall respects that litigation may not always be appropriate to achieving a resolution. Civil litigation in the City of Ottawa requires all disputes to attend a mediation session where all parties and their lawyers attend with a neutral third party to see if issues can be narrowed or even a total resolution achieved.

In some cases attending such a mediation in advance of even starting litigation can be effective at reducing tensions between the parties and achieve a resolution without the need for the cost of litigation.

In many cases the lawyers of Richardson Hall have acted for parties in either side of a dispute. Our experience representing both commercial tenants and landlords makes it easier for us to advise our clients and determine what the other side’s rights and objectives may be.

This is also the case where we have acted for both homeowners and mortgage lenders when it comes to proceedings involving mortgages, or for both purchasers and venders in disputes relating to home defects.

This can help lead to an earlier settlement as we will have strategies effective in both sides working out a resolution.
