Litigation & Dispute Resolution Services

We understand and apply ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) methods wherever possible to reduce the time and cost of obtaining the best possible result for our client.

Canadian Business Legal Checkup

Ellyn Law LLP has developed a new legal service which will provide an audit of legal matters affecting small and medium sized businesses.  Canadian Business Legal Checkup  is a diagnostic tool small and medium size businesses could use to verify if legal aspects of their operation comply with the law and also, to minimize risk, litigation and expense. When the Business Legal Checkup is completed, the business owner receives a lawyer’s report red-flagging matters which need correction, improvement or further legal advice.  Please see our recent article on this topic in the Articles section of our website, entitled “The Business Legal Checkup: Preventive advice for the legal health of your Business”.
