We are thrilled to announce that Fogler, Rubinoff LLP has been voted as one of the top three law firms by Canadian Lawyer Magazine in their annual ranking of leading Ontario Regional Firms.

Canadian Lawyer Magazine surveyed lawyers, in-house counsel and clients from across Canada to nominate firms worthy of being ranked, and then created an open survey from that list which was distributed throughout the publication’s channels. Voters were asked to make their choices based on each firm’s “regional service coverage, client base, notable mandates, service excellence and legal expertise.”

Thank you to our peers, colleagues and clients for once again recognizing us with this honour, and congratulations to all of the firms ranked in the survey this year.

On April 27th David Thiel will share his perspective on what condominium boards need to know when engaging engineering consultants.

This Community Association Institute – Canada webinar will cover the effective maintenance and restoration of condominium buildings and how it can be challenging for condominium boards to determine when to engage these consultants. The decision-making process involves various considerations, including the necessity for a designed scope of work, the need for a building permit, and ensuring that the service contractor’s quote covers the right equipment. To explore these matters, our panel of industry engineering experts will discuss the optimal threshold for engaging engineering consultants and provide guidance on properly defining the scope of work. Furthermore, the panel will address some crucial engineering hot topics such as the aging of pipe liners and their failure as well as incomplete expansion systems installed for fan coil hydronic risers.
