Claims for Damages for Breach of Contract – Toronto Lawyers

Gilbertson Davis LLP has extensive experience in the resolution of disputes concerning contracts and agreements of diverse subject matter in a wide variety of businesses and industries.

Located in the Financial District, we have senior counsel with decades of experience in the litigation and arbitration of contractual issues.  Our lawyers have been involved in matters as simple as a single-page contract between two people and as large as multi-party commercial contractual relations and disputes between multinational corporations.

Contract Litigation Lawyers

Gilbertson Davis LLP has lawyers with experience in advising and representing individuals and businesses on contract formation and validity of contracts, whether agreed in writing or otherwise, including a variety of standard form contracts used in commercial and industrial settings.

Likewise we can advise on the likely construction a court or arbitrator would place on a contract or individual terms thereof, what express or implied terms, including statutorily implied terms, would likely be found by a court or arbitrator to be included in a contract.  In this way, the rights and obligations of each of the parties to a contract can be fully understood.

Whether or not a contract is discharged by performance in accordance with its terms, whether there is a lawfully recognized excuse for non-performance or partial performance, whether there has been a breach of contract, and the legal effect of the breach and the response by the other party to the contract, are legal considerations often at the heart of a contract dispute or litigation.

Injunctions Stopping Breach of Contract

In appropriate  circumstances a party to a contract may seek an interim, interlocutory or permanent injunction restraining the other party to the agreement from breaching the contract, or taking steps in preparation of doing so. Sometimes this interim, interlocutory or permanent remedy is viewed as a declaration and mandatory order.

We can provide advice on these and other types of urgent remedies, whether pertaining to an existing or contemplated legal action in Ontario, in relation to a domestic (Ontario) or international arbitration, or when the relief is sought in connection with proceedings brought or intended in another jurisdiction.

A party to an agreement seeking this kind of injunction or order should not delay in seeking legal advice and bringing the appropriate legal proceedings for this remedy.

Please also see our other webpages concerning termination of contracts and with respect to injunctions and other urgent equitable remedies.
