Are we different?

That's what our clients tell us - and most seem to intend it as a compliment.

Are we different?

We take particular satisfaction in winning cases other lawyers have dismissed as unwinnable. Achieving a just outcome looks different for every file. Bakerlaw is committed to matching a case that cries out for justice with the resolution it deserves.

While no one can guarantee you a win, I can promise that every one of our clients will sense our dedication to making justice accessible. That’s why we are here.

There’s no magic to it, really. We keep our overhead low and we attract lawyers and legal workers of exceptional talent. We have team members located in Toronto, Ottawa and London so we are able to assist clients within and beyond the GTA region. Our team members have come to us because they share the firm’s commitment to making justice accessible.

The firm doesn’t pretend to be all things to all people, nor are we necessarily going to tell you what you want to hear.  Sometimes the most valuable service we can perform is to indicate a case is a loser and help minimize a client’s losses.

Most frequently, we assist clients to negotiate settlements quickly and efficiently.  In our view, the likelihood of achieving a favourable settlement is substantially enhanced by a firm which has a track record of going to the Supreme Court of Canada, if necessary, in order to achieve a just outcome for a client. Bakerlaw has that track record.

In brief, we have a special interest in litigating challenging cases, without losing sight of our client’s goals.

We also have an interest in advancing the interests of our clients, even when it is not possible to perform the traditional role of legal counsel from the beginning to the end of a case.

In some instances, would-be clients cannot afford to pay for legal services. In such instances, we may be able to assist by offering a consultation at crucial stages in the litigation process.

Inaccessibility of legal services is a major cause of injustice in Canada. Bakerlaw is dedicated to trying to change that.

Check out our website to find out more about the legal services we offer (link) and the clients we have represented (link).  If you have any further questions about what we do, I invite you to get in touch with us directly (link). In the meantime, I would like to thank you on – behalf of all of the bakerlaw team –  for visiting us online and taking the time to learn about our firm and the work that we do.
