Christopher Caruana, Toronto Lawyer

Christopher commenced his career as a corporate / commercial lawyer representing a variety of clients from small businesses to large institutional clients and lenders. As time passed, he ceased to devote his entire professional efforts towards corporate / commercial law and began to practice more and more litigation with an emphasis upon commercial litigation. Again, his client base varied from small businesses and individuals up to large financial institutions, stock brokerage firms and insurance companies. He has appeared before all levels of court in Ontario, including successfully representing clients before the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.


The two elements of Christopher’s practice complement each other in a way not often found in an era of specialization by lawyers. Through his transactional work, Christopher is able to determine what documents matter and, sometimes more importantly, what documents are missing in complex commercial litigation files. Similarly, an in-depth knowledge and appreciation of the pitfalls resulting from drafting errors that lead to litigation had provided the ability to avoid those errors in his commercial practice.


Christopher has been published in numerous periodicals including the Advocates’ Quarterly and the GTA Business Journal. He is an active member of the Canadian, New York State and American Bar Associations.


In late 2004, Christopher determined: (a) that a fully effective lawyer requires a balance between work and life; (b) that his wife and two young sons were not seeing him nearly enough; (c) that large firms on Bay Street are of little use to smaller clients due to either frequent conflicts of interest or simply because smaller clients cannot afford access to lawyers at the large firms. As such, he carefully planned throughout the remainder of 2004, all of 2005 and the beginning of 2006 to create a law firm environment based upon technology and “best practices” that would permit the smaller client to have access to his corporate / commercial and litigation abilities at an affordable price, while at the same time permitting him to “get a life”. The firm is the culmination of Christopher’s vision and planning.
