Frequently Asked Questions

Typically, your claim would need to be brought within 2 years when you suffered the loss or had knowledge that you suffered the loss. However, there can be exceptions and the starting time for the 2 year period can depend on the facts of your case.

It is always a good policy to be completely transparent and honest with your lawyer regarding your case and circumstances. Your lawyers’ ability to help you may be impaired if they do not have crucial pieces of information. Everything that you disclose to the lawyer will, of course, be protected by lawyer-client privilege and will be confidential. We recommend that you provide your lawyer with all relevant documents as the outset and let the lawyers decide which documents are relevant to the action. In any case, you will be required by law to disclose to the other side all documents that are relevant to any matter in issue in the action if your action proceeds to the discovery stage.


If you are involved in a dispute with your accountant, auditor, engineer, financial adviser, real-estate agent and architect and require timely, practical and skilled advice, please contact us today for an initial consultation.
