Adair Barristers LLP is a boutique civil litigation firm led by Geoff Adair and John Adair.
We are trial and appellate advocates. Few firms can match the depth of our experience in the courtroom or at the bargaining table. Our lawyers have tried over 250 cases to verdict and argued in excess of 150 appeals in the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada. We regularly represent public corporations, private companies and individuals in significant commercial litigation cases, class actions, products liability claims, real estate and partnership disputes, commercial insurance claims including directors’ and officers’ liability insurance issues whether for insurer or insured, professional liability actions and major tort litigation including defamation, bad faith and serious personal injury or wrongful death.
Adair Barristers’ lawyers receive the highest independent survey peer reviews by respected publications including Lexpert and Best Lawyers. Our two founding partners are supported by a group of exceptionally talented young lawyers. Together with a team of dedicated assistants and leading edge litigation software we can and do deliver outstanding results in the most significant of litigation matters.
Our promise to our clients is to offer trial and appellate advocacy at a level matched only by a select few of our opponents and to provide timely and efficient legal services at a fair cost.
