Gillman Professional Corporation is an Ontario-based firm of Barristers & Solicitors (Lawyers).
We are dedicated to providing quality, efficient and cost-effective Canadian legal services. We deliver our services in a manner appropriate to each client’s particular needs and preferences.
The ability to deliver customized excellence is based on listening to and understanding our clients and their objectives. On a daily basis, we deliver value that includes not just prompt and excellent legal service but also business insight and sensitivity to the industry concerned.We focus on what we do extremely well. This means we will not be all things to all clients, but clients can place a high degree of trust on the areas of practice in which we focus.
We believe in “Quality, Value and Personal Service”.
We provide effective, results-oriented services and “large firm” expertise. We are clear writers and speakers. We are committed to providing hands-on, business-oriented advice which assists clients to implement their business plans effectively while complying with legal and regulatory requirements.
Our services are available at prices which are considerably less than you would normally pay to large law firms. We believe in value for money. Fee estimates are available upon request. Flexible fee arrangements can also be made in appropriate cases.
We believe in being responsive and accessible no matter the size of our client. Each and every client is important to us and receives the benefits of our personal attention and years of experience. In addition, the scale on which we operate enables us to learn and understand clients’ needs. We apply business and legal judgment and experience to permit clients to make proper decisions to further their business objectives. In addition, we are responsive to clients’ needs outside of the traditional 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. environment and work to our clients’ schedules. We are there when you need us.
Both of our principals have considerable experience acting as quasi-in-house legal counsel, where we were in effect extensions of the company’s legal department. We have acted in this capacity for major chemical companies and financial institutions.
This enables us to take secondments to enable companies and their General Counsel to implement smart and effective resourcing decisions which reduce fixed costs or the over-use of more expensive law firms.
Legal outsourcing is growing in popularity as corporate legal departments seek to minimize costs, increase flexibility and expand their in-house capabilities. In addition, outsourcing legal work to us allows your organization to access high-level talent and niche expertise that may not exist within your firm or company, or not at the more senior level we can offer.
We can assist you part-time, temporarily, on a project basis, or as a consultant. Examples of where we can assist include:
- Project support
- Part-time corporate counsel
- Family-leave or other short-term legal staffing
- Contract reviews
- Transactional due diligence
- Legal research and writing
- Subject matter expertise in the areas set out in this website
In addition to bringing our legal expertise to our engagements, we also work and partner with leading financial services and payments consultants in providing an integrated professional services offering in such areas as business and product strategy, execution and implementation, business case development, project planning and project management.
