Jerome H. Stanleigh

Barrister & Solicitor

It is most important for me to enlist the law to help resolve difficulties encountered by clients in the swiftest manner at the least cost. Litigation is a course of last resort and settlement of disputes is the thrust of all energies until such cannot be achieved.


General practice of law with emphasis on civil litigation. In my initial years of practice in British Columbia, I specialized in criminal law with an aggressive practice in real estate including mortgage financing. This was followed up by eight years of practicing law in Israel where I was called to the Israeli Bar in 1979. In Israel I was involved mainly with start up high technology companies with an emphasis on corporate financing. At present my practice in Ontario has been concentrated on providing medium sized corporations with sales of $1,000,000 to $100,000,000 with general counsel legal advise, including registering private corporations, land titles transfers, mortgage financing, corporate structuring, shareholder agreements, lease agreements, and debt documentation, Seventy-Five Percent (75%) of my practice consists of corporate litigation in including employee fraud, shareholder disputes, directors liability, breaches of contract, professional liability and some personal injury cases. I still do some criminal litigation with domestic assault and Theft Under being the most common charges needing private counsel’s attention. Five percent (5%) of my practice consists of family law disputes.
