Settling before trial can lead to big savings

The Toronto Star recently published an article outlining the potential costs of litigation and lawyers fees. It indicated that the average civil trial will cost just over $60,000.

The above figure was based on a lawyer’s fee of $300/hr. However, the article pointed out that lawyer’s fees can range from as low as $250/hr up to approximately $800/hr.

Fortunately for those in Ontario who may be involved in or perhaps are considering litigating an employment law matter, mediation is a mandatory component of the dispute resolution process.
