WeirFoulds’ Commercial Litigation Practice Group lawyers contribute to the Civil Procedure & Practice in Ontario 2021

WeirFoulds Commercial Litigation Practice Group is proud to contribute to Civil Procedure & Practice in Ontario (“CPPO”), a new free online resource jointly published by the University of Windsor and CanLII.  CPPO will serve as a guide to Ontario’s Rules of Civil Procedure, Courts of Justice Act, and Limitations Act.

WeirFoulds’ Partners Caroline Abela, John Buhlman and Nadia Chiesa as well as Associates, Natalia Sidlar, Max Skrow and Agatha Wong were among the impressive number of lawyers from across Ontario who authored the CPPO.

The legislation and common law governing civil disputes in Ontario is voluminous and difficult to decipher — for lawyers as well as lay-people. In this context, the CPPO is thorough enough to meet the needs of specialist litigators and it is also designed to be accessible to law office staff, self-represented litigants, and the general public.

Topics covered by our Commercial Litigation Practice Group include:

  • Caroline Abela and Natalia Sidlar: Interim Possession of Personal Property (Rule 44 of the Rules of Civil Procedure).
  • John Buhlman (with former WeirFoulds Associate Vipal Jain): Rule 32 Inspection of Property
  • Nadia Chiesa and Max Skrow: Interlocutory Orders, Interim Recovery of Personal Property and Medical Examinations of a Party
  • Agatha Wong: Section 106 (Stay of Proceedings) and Rule 60 (Enforcement of Orders)

The publication is edited by Prof. Noel Semple of the University of Windsor Faculty of Law, and published free on CanLII.
