Stockwoods LLP has been a leading Toronto-based litigation boutique since its founding in 1979. The firm’s practice is unique among top-ranked litigation firms, ranging from high-stakes commercial litigation through all forms of regulatory and administrative matters, to sophisticated criminal litigation. Its lawyers regularly appear in the Ontario and Federal Courts, the Supreme Court of Canada and in other jurisdictions nationwide, as well as before a wide range of administrative tribunals. The firm is highly regarded for the consistent top-quality lawyering throughout its ranks from senior partners to junior associates, as well as for outstanding individual practice expertise in areas such as professional regulation and liability, securities law, national security matters, intellectual property enforcement, defamation and media law, appeals and judicial reviews, and class actions. While the firm’s lawyers routinely appear in high-profile public disputes before the courts, they also frequently advise and represent clients on difficult challenges outside the public eye.
