Zarek Taylor Grossman Hanrahan LLP is Toronto's pre-eminent insurance defence law firm that was established in 1997. The genesis of the firm is based on our common ideals and beliefs in dealing with the defence of insurance disputes. We believe that these common ideals and beliefs stand us apart from the competition.
While our small, founding group of professionals and support staff has grown by more than 10 times since the beginning, the principles on which our firm was founded remain the same:
Focus on service
We set out to build an organization that put client service first, and that value continues to define us as a firm. We listen, respond promptly, and communicate at every stage – and the advocacy work and actions we take are always focussed on your needs, not ours.
Value our people
While our lawyers encompass a diversity of personalities, work styles and experience, we share a love of our work, a deep respect for our colleagues – and place a high value on integrity and collegiality in the workplace. This positive firm culture extends to the strong, lasting relationships that we have built with our clients.Our firm is only as good as the people working here. At Zarek Taylor Grossman Hanrahan LLP, our partners and associates are leaders in major legal associations, active in the Law Society of Upper Canada and the Advocates Society, familiar faces on seminar and lecture circuits.
Deliver unparalleled expertise
We are recognized leaders in our field, with an expertise that spans the breadth of the insurance defence practice. We are creative, innovative thinkers – with a strong track record of success in developing solutions and resolving disputes for our clients in the most effective, efficient, and proactive manner possible.
We share a deep commitment to giving back to the industry we serve. Our partners and associates are leaders in major legal associations, and act as presenters at industry events and as lecturers at a number of post-secondary institutions. Most importantly, we are honoured to be an ongoing education and training resource for our clients, whenever a need arises.
Advocacy is the hallmark craft of our profession. We do it well. However, communication is at the centre of effective advocacy. What we do best is communicate with, and on behalf of our clients. Most of our clients have a strong market presence, and a positive recognition factor in the public domain. They worked hard for these. We see ourselves, as counsel for these clients, as having an obligation to enhance that positive reputation. Advocacy is the hallmark craft of our profession. We do it well. However, communication is at the centre of effective advocacy. What we do best is communicate with, and on behalf of our clients.We are successful in our endeavours because we are creative, innovative thinkers, who look for solutions to problems outside the mainstream. Almost no one wants to be in litigation. Our role is to bring about resolution of disputes in the most effective, cost efficient, time efficient, proactive and positive manner.
