  • Our Approach
    At Bales Beall LLP, our approach to successful outcomes is to manage issues as early as possible—before they become bigger problems. If the issue is beyond our area of expertise, we’ll refer the case to another specialist, closely monitoring the work and service for you.

    Strategy > We give clients proactive, practical and strategic advice they can use. We know precisely what to ask to obtain a clear understanding of all the possible consequences.

    Culture > Our culture is marked by good judgment, imagination and flexibility. Above all, we are driven by pragmatism, sensitivity, and unwavering resolve to do what’s right for our clients.

    Listeners > We’re good listeners who go beyond the words that are said, or even unsaid, to understand what is truly meant.

    Reputation > Bales Beall LLP is esteemed by other lawyers. Our peers know us to be direct, strategic, fair and balanced.

    Continuous Learning > To ensure we stay up to date, we are active in Continuing Legal Education. All our lawyers are members of the Law Society of Upper Canada, Canadian Bar Association and Ontario Bar Association, and are encouraged to further their involvement in areas of specialty.

    Community Involvement > We are active in the community, sponsoring charitable events, serving on Boards and contributing pro bono counsel.

    Dispute Resolution

    You can depend on us to exercise keen judgment, get to the heart of the matter, and set out a strategy to minimize the intrusive impact of any dispute in your life. We are astute problem solvers with years of experience before all levels of court and at mediation, involving all manner of personal and business- related disputes. Conflict can have a positive outcome—some disputes should not be litigated and can be successfully resolved through mediation and other alternatives. Regardless of the method, we will help lift the problem from your shoulders.

    Rare Breadth of Expertise

    Our support embraces all areas of business planning, succession planning, estate planning and family law, plus their interrelated disputes and litigation. We specialize in matters of significant assets, complex property protection, and interests in family businesses.
