What Clients Are Saying
Thank you for all of your help in the sale of my Aunt’s home. It has been a pleasure to work with you. Your speedy responses and positive outlook have been greatly appreciated.
We have absolute trust in the wonderful team at Morrison Brown Sosnovitch for the wonderful way they have looked after our legal needs for over 8 years now. We are usually accommodated by Laila whose friendly and professional manner is a pleasure to work with and makes us confident that we have the best legal team in our corner. Thank you for the hard work you have done for us to keep our legal affairs in good order.
I refer clients to Laila Parvez for practical and timely legal advice. Laila’s common sense approach is much appreciated and results in a great return on legal fee investment.
We always appreciate the good work and fast response we get from Laila and MBS – they have the experience and depth to handle our company’s requirements.
It’s been a pleasure working with Laila over the past number of years. Laila has become an essential asset for our team; we rely on her for a number of ongoing items surrounding deal structures and contracts. Laila’s ability to make herself available and translate my simple jargon to legal terminology or reversely explain the legal jargon back simple English is brilliant. I can’t say enough great things about our working relationship and what a joy it is working with her.
Laila is a dedicated, professional and, most importantly, knowledgeable lawyer that assisted our Canadian subsidiary in a commercial lease transaction. She was very pragmatic and commercial throughout the process and provided valuable legal advice. We would highly recommend her as legal counsel.
I required a commercial contract on short notice and found the timeliness and expertise of Laila Parvez at Morrison Brown Sosnovitch LLP in preparing and negotiating the contract to be exceptional. She quickly grasped what I was trying to achieve and was able to protect my interests while balancing the needs of my client.
Natalie and Morrison Brown Sosnovitch efficiently and knowledgeably guided our family through the very complex and time consuming process of applying for guardianship for our mentally handicapped brother, after our father passed. It helped us ensure his best interests and care needs were maintained.
David is a real pleasure to work with. His professional expertise and patience helped me fully understand the complexities of my situation. He is a gifted writer, who is able to document clearly and concisely the facts of a situation. I also valued his words of support and encouragement in what was a very difficult time. David and the Morrison Brown Sosnovitch team provide high quality legal services at reasonable rates.
When starting my own business I found the prospects of contracts and legalities to be very intimidating. Working with Derwin Wong always put my mind at ease. He was able to break things down into very digestible pieces. He also helped to point out my blind spots so I could make smart long term decisions for my business. Above all else, I feel that Derwin genuinely cares for the well being of his clients and will always do his due diligence to make sure his clients are building healthy and legally sound businesses. I’m very thankful to have him at my side.
Our company has been dealing with Derwin Wong subsequent to becoming a client of the firm in 2000. Derwin has always been thorough, responsive and an insightful legal advisor who has provided us with practical legal advice which has assisted us to manage a variety of legal issues with respect to Franchise Disclosure pursuant to the Arthur Wishart Act in Ontario. Derwin’s practical approach to servicing our company has saved us time and money.
Our firm consistently uses Derwin Wong and David Bleiwas to represent us in our Corporate, Civil Litigation and Real Estate Dealings. Their expertise and attention to detail is unparalleled. We consistently recommend Morrison Brown Sosnovitch LLP to our friends and family who need corporate or litigation services. They are fast, efficient and effective.
Our firm has relied on the services of Morrison Brown Sosnovitch and in particular Derwin Wong and Dixie Ho for over 10 years. As a smaller firm they deliver personalized service with an excellent skillset. We would highly recommend their services.
Derwin assisted my husband and me in setting up our medical corporations efficiently. He was personable, knowledgeable, straightforward, and able to accommodate our busy schedules. We would not hesitate to recommend Derwin.
I have been using the legal services of Derwin Wong at Morrison Brown Sosnovitch for many years now. I turn to Derwin for most of my corporate legal requirements in Toronto. I not only find Derwin to be highly professional in the advice and services he provides, he also responds promptly to any request and continues to work diligently on the file.
We value the strategic and focused legal direction provided by the law offices of Morrison Brown Sosnovitch LLP. Derwin Wong and Dixie Ho are committed to ensuring our organization’s success and deliver relevant, effective and sound legal counsel. Their professionalism and responsive approach make them an important and valued partner to our organization.
I am pleased to comment on the quality of the legal services provided by Ross Morrison on my behalf. Ross is a senior litigator with many years of experience representing clients in a variety of industry sectors, including the professional disciplines. On this occasion Ross represented me in proceedings before an administrative tribunal which were complex and contentious. Ross demonstrated his ability and expertise in distilling an extensive body of information, in presenting the evidence of several expert witnesses, and in cross-examining the witnesses for the other side, in an orderly, efficient and articulate manner, all the while demonstrating his respect for the tribunal and its process. In the end I was completely vindicated, the allegations dismissed and my out-of-pocket legal expenses reimbursed, a result for which I am indebted to my legal counsel and the manner in which he very capably represented my interests.
Thank you for all that you’ve done! You truly are a rockstar!
Dealing with your firm generally, and yourself personally was a very pleasant experience. Your professionalism and compassion for your clients was so comforting. By handling the settlement agreement with our previous partner to perfection, and drafting the partnership agreement with the new partner without a glitch, our group and myself were extremely satisfied. You have us as clients forever.
It has been my good fortune to work with the team at MBS for the past seven years. In that time I have benefitted immensely from many aspects of the their professional services. At all times my matters were dealt with professionally, in a timely manner, and with a immense diligence. I highly recommend the services of MBS.
I have been a client of Derwin Wong of Morrison Brown Sosnovitch for over 10 years. Derwin has been a key factor in our growth from one spa location to 3 with a production facility and ecommerce. Derwin’s relationship with us evolved with our needs from incorporations, location leases, copyright infringements and now franchising. Our confidence in Derwin’s advice grows with our continued relationship. As a small business, consultant fees are always a concern, but in hindsight, our legal fees have been one our best investments.
Laila Parvez expertly guided us through the successful management acquisition of our company. She quickly grasped both the business and emotional aspects of the purchase and provided us with direction and support throughout the process. Laila’s ability to help us understand the complexities of the acquisition’s legal components was invaluable. It is this excellence and professionalism that has made Morrison Brown Sosnovitch our go to firm and we will highly recommend them to our colleagues.
Natalie’s experience with difficult family relationships and the subsequent legal challenges and opportunities helped my sister and me through an extraordinarily trying time with an elderly parent. She was compassionate and understanding while providing the legal expertise as well as a much-needed distance and objectivity that allowed us to move toward a legal resolution.
Concern over legal and financial matters in our family led us to Natalie’s law firm, who came highly recommended. Natalie provided excellent and thorough guidance resulting in a positive outcome. Employing a specialist in estates law was instrumental in resolving these issues.
My sister and I engaged Natalie Schernitzki to help resolve a seemingly unsolvable road block with regards to the settlement of the estate of our deceased brother. With choreographed precision she made all the right moves with never a missed step and put the process back on track. From this experience, we can unreservedly recommend this intelligent, knowledgeable and highly personable lawyer to anyone finding themselves in similar circumstance.
Natalie was recommended to me 5 years ago. At that time my condition both mentally and physically was not very good due to a personal matter I was dealing with. After explaining my situation to Natalie her compassion towards me put me at ease and gave me confidence. Whatever I asked Natalie was totally honest and, if she did not know, she would always check. Natalie gave me accurate advice based on complete knowledge of the facts. Natalie was able to communicate effectively with me and had tremendous patience in allowing me to understand the law and why it’s processes are so complex. In doing so this allowed me to make informed decisions. My experience in dealing with her was not only professional, but an absolute pleasure. I will continue to recommend her.
A very serious claim was made against me that could have had serious and far-reaching consequences for me and my family. I did not feel as though the first lawyer that I hired was effective or compassionate so I asked around and it was my good fortune to be referred to Natalie by a friend. She took a situation that appeared to be dire and, through rigorous advocacy and a methodical approach, she successfully defended the claim and obtained a judgment at trial that restored my reputation and saved me from financial ruin. Natalie’s professionalism, attention to detail and integrity sets her apart. She took the time to come to our home and to get to know us and we always felt like more than just her clients. I am so grateful to have had her by my side during this very stressful and difficult time.
Thank you. I couldn’t have asked for better counsel. You were thorough, gave me all my options with just the facts, and kind. Exemplary work. Again, thank you.
