FINDING THE SOLUTION
FINDING THE SOLUTION
A dispute is not necessarily synonymous with legal proceedings. At LANE, our goal is first and foremost to resolve your dispute as quickly as possible, whether through negotiation or mediation when possible, or as a last resort, through legal proceedings when no other alternative is possible. We counsel and assist our clients in finding innovative solutions to resolve their disputes as efficiently as possible and in their best interests.
In the event that legal proceedings become unavoidable, our lawyers will represent you with competence, rigour, professionalism, and determination to assert your rights before the courts, whether as a plaintiff or as a defendant.
We distinguish ourselves by our approach centered rigour, independence, top-quality work, and transparency: if we do not believe in a case’s chances of success, we inform our client on the spot. Particularly, it is our policy to not undertake legal proceedings for which we believe the financial or business issues do not justify the costs that would be incurred.
We make it a point of honour to always give our clients a clear picture of the situation, objectively and from the outset. Particularly, this includes informing them of the foreseeable and realistic costs and fees that they should expect to incur, the strengths and weaknesses of their case, as well as the impacts and consequences of their decisions.
From the very beginning of a case, we establish a strategic plan with our clients in order to achieve the desired result. As business lawyers, we distinguish ourselves in litigation and conflict resolution by our cost-benefit approach focused on achieving this result as efficiently as possible. While our lawyers are skilled litigators, they also distinguish themselves by their negotiating skills.
We work proactively to offer and propose innovative, pragmatic, and customized solutions to our clients to resolve their disputes and litigation. We distinguish ourselves by our determination to provide our clients with top-tier customer service and a continual follow-up on their case. Our lawyers constantly stay informed of the recent developments in their fields of practice and regularly attend continuing professional education seminars to perfect their skills and benefit our clients.
Negotiations to avoid litigation: We help you to negotiate, conclude, and draft a settlement agreement to avoid long and costly judicial litigation. We favour and encourage alternative methods of dispute resolution, when possible.
Representation before the courts: We provide representation in civil and commercial litigation, including litigation in matters of real estate, faulty construction, and shareholders’ disputes, both at the trial and appeal levels.
Urgent recourses: When time is of the essence, the stakes are high, and the situation’s urgency requires immediate and expeditious actions, you can count on us to undertake any urgent recourse, such as a seizure before judgment or an injunction to stop a situation that is likely to cause you irreparable harm.
