Discover Our Practice Areas

Conroy Scott is a full-service law firm with a focus on civil litigation, corporate law and criminal law. We serve our clients’ best interests while providing advice and assistance in the following areas:

Civil Litigation is the area of law that deals with competing claims among individuals. It’s often referred to as “private law”. In other words, it regulates how private disputes between individuals or corporations are to be resolved.

Private law includes claims for loss, damage or injury in all fields other than administrative law (Transport Board, C.R.T.C. and all other Boards), public law (Employment Insurance, Welfare laws, Election laws, etc..) and criminal or quasi criminal law (Highway Traffic Act, Motorized Snowmobile Act, Occupational Health and Safety Legislation).

Civil law includes commercial and contract claims, insurance claims, personal injury claims, property claims, wills and estate claims, debt collection, and others. Because it is a very wide practice area, it is usually divided into sub-categories such as: insurance law, commercial law, etc. There are, however, basic matters of procedure which apply to the entire field of civil litigation.

Corporate/Commercial law encompasses a broad spectrum of relationships.

Commercial law relates to business carried on for profit. Business may be conducted by corporations or by individuals, either alone or in partnership. Virtually all areas of law have an impact on business, but the most common areas are those relating to security agreements, contracts, employment, taxation, intellectual property, and licensing.

Partnership agreements are formal contracts by which participants in a business agree to manage their affairs, divide profits and bear losses, and add or withdraw participants. As an alternative, business corporations may form the vehicle through which business is conducted. The Articles of Incorporation and By-laws can be varied to address the needs of specific shareholders. Unanimous shareholder agreements are similar, in many respects, to partnership agreements within a corporate setting, generally to settle the manner in which the corporation will be run, often with clauses prohibiting some dealings in shares, and others providing for financing, board representation, indemnification, conduct of business, retirement and withdrawal with or without a “shotgun” clause or right of first refusal, audit, and general matters.

Corporations can be formed for various purposes under acts of Parliament or the Legislature. While the majority of corporations are created to carry on business for profit, some are formed to operate for charitable or non-profit purposes; others are intended to do no more than provide a structure within which the participants can conduct their affairs. A client’s present and future needs must be determined through focused consultation and a corporate structure must be built to suit those needs.
