Leading-Edge Law – On Your Side
Our co-founder Rodney Hull was one of the first lawyers in Canada to specialize in estate and trust issues – and with his son Ian, built our firm into Canada’s premier estate, trust and capacity litigation specialists.
Spanning more than 50 years of service, our firm has acted in Canada’s largest and most complex estate cases – including at the Supreme Court – and our lawyers have written two leading texts on estate law. We have a former Chief Justice of Ontario and a Queen’s law professor on our team, along with a number of certified specialists in estate and trust law and civil litigation.
Our legal leadership continues with our lawyers writing numerous articles on estate issues and pushing the boundaries of legal knowledge with ongoing blogs and podcasts. Ian M. Hull alone speaks at more than 30 conferences a year on estate and trust issues.
When estate issues arise, there’s a lot at stake, both financially and emotionally. Legal expertise can make all the difference in obtaining a successful resolution.
We focus exclusively on estate and trust law, so when you work with us, you get close personal attention, an efficient, businesslike approach to problem solving – and a custom solution to your estate matter.
