About Us

Affleck Greene McMurtry LLP ("AGM") is among the most recognized counsel firms in Ontario, known for its expertise in all manners of complex commercial litigation and competition law.

AGM provides practical advice focused on clients' goals and works towards achieving those goals in the most cost-effective way. While that outcome is usually reached through negotiation, AGM believes that their willingness and ability to take a case to trial leads to better negotiated results.

AGM keeps the cost of litigation down by staffing files conservatively, focusing on what needs to be done to win the case, and charging hourly rates that are somewhat lower than large firms.
