We do not do it all, but what we do, we do remarkably well.
When a disagreement arises, we aim to resolve the dispute without the need for litigation, whether that is through negotiation, mediation, or arbitration. In instances when litigation becomes unavoidable, our clients trust that we will litigate their cases with the same determination with which we would litigate a case on behalf of our family and friends.
We advise owners, general contractors, subcontractors, architects, and consultants involved in all types of construction law matters.
Our strength lies in providing cost-effective and innovative recovery solutions. We represent, amongst others, financial institutions, credit unions, and insurance companies in their collection work regarding both secured and unsecured debts.
If successful, mediation is more cost-effective than traditional litigation and provides a quicker resolution and better privacy. Jonathan Speigel handles a wide range of mediation issues, including matters relating to business law, employment, wills, and construction.
We advise clients on the commercial aspects of issues relating to the purchase, sale, and financing of businesses, and the negotiation and drafting of shareholders agreements, partnership agreements, and employment contracts.
We advise clients on the tax aspects of issues relating to income tax disputes; tax and estate planning; family business succession; shareholder agreements and disputes; amalgamations and other corporate reorganisations; the purchase and sale of corporations or their businesses; and employee buyouts.
