Toronto Real Estate Lawyer

At Yigal Rifkind, Barrister & Solicitor, we are driven by efficiency and results.

Our clients rely on us to process their matters quickly, accurately and reliably. Whether we are providing a service aimed at preventing difficulties and legal disputes in the future, or helping you deal with an existing situation that has become challenging, our focus is on making sure you get the best result with the least expense.

Getting Results For You

Our practice includes:

  • Litigation: Whether we are dealing with mortgage enforcement, construction liens, other real estate disputes or general legal disputes, our record of success is due in part to the fact that we do not take cases to court if they are unlikely to win. We believe Canada's court system is too costly for most clients in terms of money and time. If your case looks unlikely to succeed in court, we will find other ways to protect your interests, such as negotiation or mediation.
  • Real estate: Real estate, whether residential or commercial, involves large investments for everyone involved. It's essential to make sure that everyone understands what they are signing, that all hidden costs are accounted for, and that complications are managed in an efficient, timely manner to prevent financial loss.
  • Purchase and sale of a business: A large part of our work in these transactions involves anticipating everything that could go wrong with your deal. We also ensure that any contracts are negotiated and drafted with your best interest in mind, and protect you from future difficulties.
  • Wills and estates: We can help you plan for your own death and incapacity, deal with a loved one's final matters, and represent you if there is something wrong with a will or the way it is administered.
  • Independent Legal Advice (ILA): Some clients see getting ILA as a rubber stamp, a hoop to jump through before they can get a contract signed. We consider it a serious legal obligation. Before our lawyer signs his name approving a contract, we must be satisfied that everything is in order and your legal rights have been respected. We will not advise you to sign if it is not in your best interest.
