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
