Norwich Order

Posted on January 18, 2023 | Posted in Collections, Five Liners

1061307 Ontario Inc. v. Wang and Weng 2022 Ont SCJ

Creditor brought a motion for a Norwich order against 2 separate lawyers who had been involved in real estate transactions that seemingly used the debtor’s money, but were shown under the names of the debtor’s relatives. The lawyers attended and fought the motion, but their clients did not appear. The court held that there was little in a real estate file that could be solicitor-client privileged and ordered the files produced, subject to the lawyers requesting the judge to exempt a document based on solicitor-client privilege.
