Acting for individuals, corporations and institutions, Lawrence Hansen has a highly varied commercial litigation practice which includes dealing with shareholder disputes, business and employee fraud, the enforcement of judgments, debt recovery, contract disputes as well as litigation arising from commercial leases.
Lawrence also has over ten years of experience with insurance-related matters, mostly but not exclusively for insurers, focussing on complex litigation matters, particularly those involving insurance fraud, coverage, title insurance, and allegations of bad faith. He has advised clients on difficult questions surrounding suspicious and potentially fraudulent claims, their investigation, the remedies available to clients, and high-risk arson claims.
In addition, Lawrence has been retained to represent defendants in personal injury and product liability claims.
From Canada’s Atlantic coast, Lawrence spent a year studying Spanish and living in South America and Mexico. He is a graduate of the University of New Brunswick (History), McGill University’s Faculty of Law, and has studied Spanish at the University of Toronto as well as in Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico and Venezuela. He began his practice at a leading firm of litigators in downtown Montreal and now lives in Toronto.
