McCague Borlack LLP is a law firm dedicated to litigation and alternative dispute resolution techniques, including arbitration and mediation. We put these skills to work to resolve problems for our insurance and corporate/commercial clients.

Our insurance experience encompasses property, casualty, special risks and life/health lines. We often act on complex matters involving subrogation, liability defense and coverage disputes. Particular areas of expertise include defense work in municipal, environmental, construction, auto/transportation, occupiers' and product liability matters. We handle complex claims arising under surety and fidelity bonds and boiler and machinery policies. We also provide coverage opinions and advice on the drafting of policies and treaties to insurers and reinsurers.

A distinct feature of our firm is our experience in defending professionals, including lawyers, architects, engineers, accountants, real estate brokers and agents, insurance brokers and agents, adjusters, appraisers, land surveyors, security companies, broadcasters, stockbrokers and corporate directors and officers.

We also have a diverse business litigation practice. We represent commercial lenders and have litigated and arbitrated the enforcement of commercial mortgages and related security as well as agreements of purchase and sale. We are active in all aspects of insolvency matters. We also act on behalf of corporations in negligence and contract claims.

Our partners bring to the firm many years of experience, appearing before all levels of Ontario courts and before administrative tribunals and domestic and international arbitration panels. Our firm's experience in arbitration, litigation and alternative dispute resolution allows us to offer innovative strategies to respond to our clients' needs. Whatever the method, we strive to obtain the best result for our clients quickly and cost-effectively.
