At SorbaraLaw, our goal is to achieve the best possible outcome in the shortest possible time and at the least possible cost for every client and for every legal matter with which we are entrusted.

SorbaraLaw is one of the largest and most respected full service regional law firms in Ontario.  Our diverse team of skilled lawyers allows us to be responsive to our clients’ constantly changing needs.  As a regional law firm, we have a cost structure that allows excellent legal services to be priced competitively.

Our clients are individuals, businesses, institutions, and governmental bodies, located across Ontario and around the world.  When our clients require legal expertise anywhere in the province, SorbaraLaw is there for them.  Excellent service is perhaps most tested when great distances and several time zones separate clients and lawyers.  Our firm’s reach extends beyond Canada as SorbaraLaw is regularly called upon to assist with the Canadian interests of clients in foreign jurisdictions including The United States, Eastern and Western Europe, China and Australia.

SorbaraLaw is not simply good, but among the very best.  Our firm was short-listed by Canadian Law Magazine as one of the 2013 top ten full service regional law firms in Ontario.  Candidates for that honour are selected by their peers for their excellent client service and legal knowledge, as well as for the quality of their client base, and the importance of the legal matters on which they are retained.
