The material provided on this website is not legal advice and is only of a general nature. While Davies has taken reasonable efforts to ensure the information contained herein is accurate, it does not warrant or guarantee that this information is correct or up to date.

In no event shall Davies be liable to visitors of this website or anyone else for any damages or injury whatsoever arising out of or in connection with the use or inability to use this website or any hyperlinked website (including but not limited to direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, exemplary or punitive damages, lost profits, business interruption, loss of programs or other data on your information handling system or otherwise), even if we are expressly advised of the possibility of such damages.

Davies encourages your inquiries. Please visit the individual profile pages of our lawyers on this website to find out information about their areas of practice and whether they are qualified to practise law in your particular jurisdiction. You should be aware, however, that accessing our website or contacting our lawyers using email does not create a lawyer-client relationship or impose any obligation on Davies. Moreover, due to the nature of the Internet, any electronic communication between us may not be secure and, unless you are already a client of our firm, will not be privileged and may be disclosed to other persons. Therefore, you should not send us any email that contains confidential or sensitive information unless you are already a client of Davies.
All content of this website, including its design, is protected by copyright and trademark laws. Any copying, distribution or other protected use without the express prior written permission of Davies is strictly prohibited.
We request that you not use any of the information on this website, including the email addresses that are available herein, to transmit, distribute or facilitate the distribution of unsolicited bulk email or other advertisements to Davies or any of its partners or employees.
Certain Terms of Service
The governing bodies of the legal profession in Ontario and Québec have imposed certain rules relating to the opening of new matters for clients and the operations of law firm trust accounts. These rules, sometimes referred to as “Know Your Client” rules, are designed to assist in the prevention of activities such as money laundering. Accordingly, Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP (Davies) has implemented certain file opening and trust account procedures to ensure that we comply with our obligations as efficiently as possible while minimizing the impact on our clients.
Client Identification: When we are retained to act on a new file, whether for a new or an existing client, Davies must collect certain specific information. For clients that are organizations, this will normally include information such as the client’s incorporation or business identification number and jurisdiction of formation. For clients who are individuals, we must also record the client’s occupation, home address and telephone number. We are obligated to obtain this information also in regard to any third parties for whom our client may be acting in the matter. Unless that relevant information changes from time to time, it is obtained once only per client.
As part of an ongoing retainer, Davies lawyers make every effort to ensure the client is provided with all documentation relevant to the matter. Clients that, upon termination or completion of a matter, wish us to send them any additional documentation are requested to please so advise us. Otherwise, any documentation that our clients or others have provided to us and our work product produced for that matter will be dealt with in accordance with our records retention program (subject to strict protection of client confidentiality), which may include destruction of these materials after an appropriate time has elapsed.
We communicate with clients and others and provide documents through various forms of electronic communications, including email through the public Internet. Clients may also correspond with or provide us with documents through electronic means. These electronic communications may contain information that is confidential or privileged unless our clients instruct us not to send such information electronically. There is a risk that any such electronic communications may be intercepted or interfered with by third parties or may contain computer viruses.
In addition, we employ filtering techniques (e.g., anti-spam software) that might interfere with the timely delivery of electronic communications sent to us. Neither party will be responsible to the other, or have any liability for any actions of third parties, with respect to electronic communications that either of us might send to the other or for any delay in delivery or non-delivery or other damage caused by virtue of a communication having been made in electronic format.
Clients wishing to discuss other means of delivery of information are asked to please contact any Davies lawyers engaged in their matters. In addition, if you have any concerns or doubts about the authenticity or timing of any electronic communication purportedly sent by us, please contact us immediately.
