Contact Us

At Edelson Friedman Black LLP, we believe in working tirelessly to defend the rights of our clients. Our lawyers are regularly retained to defend individuals and corporations against all criminal offences both at trial and on appeal. We have acted on some of the most high-profile cases in Ontario.

Being charged with a criminal offence is one of the most daunting and life-changing experiences that an individual can face. We approach every case with the utmost diligence and preparation to ensure that our clients receive the best possible outcome. We make it our business to know every facet of a client’s case and the applicable law – long before we ever walk into the courtroom.

We have devoted our legal careers to fighting for the rights of accused persons through vigorous defence at trial, appellate litigation and challenges to unconstitutional legislation. We have defended clients across the country and at all levels of Court, including the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.

We are pleased to provide discreet representation for our clients throughout the province of Ontario.  Where cases involve cross-jurisdictional, international or border issues our lawyers can also make arrangements to appear in other provinces or countries.

Defending Your Rights

"We seek to understand our clients’ needs to assist them in obtaining the best possible outcome."

Leading Civil Litigation & Criminal Defence Lawyers

Civil litigation and commercial arbitrations have become challenging and expensive. At Edelson Friedman Black, we provide all manner of civil litigation and arbitration services, including commercial litigation, employment law, defamation, professional negligence law and regulatory compliance.  Our lawyers work with clients to proactively reduce their risk and bring matters to a close in the most cost-effective manner possible. 

Litigators across our Firm have represented clients before all types of trial, appellate, regulatory and alternative dispute resolution tribunals.  As a Firm, we are defined by our excellence in advocacy. An additional core strength is our ability to advise in relation to risk management in business. 

At Edelson Friedman Black, we use our public relations experience and strategic litigation focus to empower client decision making. We advise leading business, community and political leaders. We believe that the “legal solution” may not always be the practical solution because litigation is but one of many tools available to assist clients in achieving their objectives. However, zealous advocacy is imperative once litigation is commenced. This is where our firm excels. Our depth of litigation experience and strategic focus enables clients to avoid litigation if possible and effectively advocate their position once triggered.
