Firm Details

The history of Whitelaw Twining is all about progressive thinking. The firm was founded in 1979 and for more than 30 years we have been providing innovative legal solutions for local, national and international businesses, domestic and international insurance companies and individuals from all walks of life. We are dedicated to all types of litigation and advocacy, with a strong emphasis on dispute resolution.

Our strength is the hard work and passion of our lawyers who focus on the delivery of superior results in a cost-effective manner. Every legal problem we encounter provides us with an opportunity to reach beyond the standard litigation protocols for a creative solution that makes a difference. These solutions combine an enduring commitment to the law and the legal profession with an understanding that our goal is to achieve the best result in the shortest time at a reasonable cost.

Whitelaw Twining has an extensive litigation practice providing a full-range of legal expertise, which includes 18 Practice Areas and 11 Specialty Groups. We have worked with many clients over the years to develop litigation management programs reflective of their unique corporate philosophies. This approach has led to innovation in reporting on files, budgeting and tracking expenses, reviewing and auditing file performance and improving file cycle times through the effective use of case management procedures and alternative dispute resolution techniques. Litigation management programs in place with clients consistently focus on results. These can include cost containment of indemnity exposures and expenses, as well as setting and monitoring productivity or closure rate targets. We have the technology to provide statistical, summary or bordereau performance data tailor made to each client’s specific needs.

Whitelaw Twining balances hard work, passion for the law and a sensitivity to the needs of our clients. We are very proud to be considered leaders in our areas of practice. We have a proven track record of delivering exceptional service and will continue to remain focused on our core strengths as we move forward into the future.
