We then help you walk through that legal process. Our expertise as condominium law lawyers and our numerous litigation successes make us your best choice for affordable, sensible litigation. Do you know what your 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 Insurance Myth|
Subrogation and deductibles and standard units – oh my! The language used in insurance policies can be even stranger than being in Oz; but once you draw back the curtain, you can see that the magic isn’t all that complicated after all.
With the changes coming to the Condominium Act, 1998 (the “Act”), specifically those changes coming to Section 105, there has been a flurry of activity on Boards to enact insurance deductible by-laws before the ability to do so is taken away. Hand in hand with this activity has been a renewed dialogue between Owners and Boards regarding just what exactly is covered by the condominium corporation and what Owners need to take care of themselves.
