The law develops and changes constantly. Cases are decided by the courts every day. New legislation is passed by governments. Courts change their procedures from time to time. To serve our clients effectively, our lawyers keep abreast of new developments. Sometimes, we have even been asked to instruct other lawyers about developments in the law. Members of our Toronto law firm are asked to speak at legal conferences for lawyers. Igor Ellyn, QC has also spoken to non-lawyers about legal matters and early in his career, he was a weekly legal columnist for a major Toronto newspaper.
Good advocates are knowledgeable about law and court procedure and how to persuade judges, mediators and arbitrators that their client’s case deserves a good result. In this section, readers may benefit from several of the articles written by Igor Ellyn, QC for presentation to legal conferences. We have also included articles by other legal professionals which you may find interesting.
