Civil Litigation

As people work and operate together in society, it is inevitable that conflicts will arise.  Whether it involves managing conflict, negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or litigation, when a dispute or conflict arises, we invest in finding appropriate solutions in the context of your best interest.  We then help you walk through that legal process.  Our expertise as condominium law lawyers and our numerous litigation successes make us your best and affordable choice for litigation.  Do you know what you BATNA is?  Ask us – we do!

Condominium corporations are our speciality; they are governed by statutory framework which requires expertise and experience as to how a condominium works in order to ensure that the best legal solution to a litigious situation is found.

At Elia Associates, the litigation team's goal is to achieve the best possible results for our firm's clients.  The team brings a fresh approach towards delivering comprehensive and cost-effective legal solutions for condominiums, businesses, as well as individuals, whether by representing the firm's clients in court or in appropriate (alternative) dispute resolution proceedings.

Condominiums have been consistently compared to small towns or companies.  As such, they also have a need for a full range of legal services.  The litigation team's combined expertise in condominium law and civil litigation enables us to offer full litigation support to condominiums, whether with respect to condominium - specific matters such as enforcement issues, governance disputes, collections, dispute with developers, or with respect to other areas such as human rights, contract and construction disputes.

The litigation team at Elia Associates represents businesses and individuals in a wide variety of areas including corporate, commercial, real estate, human rights and condominium litigation.
