Commercial Litigation Law

Walker Law Professional Corporation is a civil litigation law firm located in the heart of the financial district in downtown Toronto. We provide cost-effective solutions to resolve legal disputes efficiently and promptly while maintaining a high level of customer service. At Walker Law, our clients are one of our top priorities, as such, we ensure that clients understand all of their options in starting or defending a lawsuit and stay informed every step of the way.

Unlike many law firms who focus on billable hours, we delegate tasks based on complexity, meaning that if a paralegal or articling student is equipped to handle the matter, the task will be assigned to them while they are supervised by one of our senior lawyers. In this way our staff members are presented with the opportunity to learn and develop their expertise while you are provided with the benefit of being billed at the significantly lower rate of a paralegal or articling student.
