Why Fillmore Riley?

When you need customized, not cookie-cutter.

Every organization and individual is as unique as the challenges they face. We always respond to the actual matter in front of us without putting a derivative solution in front of you. Every case requires a delicate balance of treating each issue as unique while drawing on years of experience to devise the best and most effective solution for you.

We understand that the lines between business and personal are often blurred and take it upon ourselves to get to know you to gain a concrete understanding of your endgame. Then, with this knowledge in hand, we approach every situation with you in mind and provide personalized solutions to help you achieve the best possible outcome.

We’re honoured that we’re often the first phone call you make — whether it be for an opportunity or an issue. We then quarterback the mandate and assemble the right team with the right resources. No matter what issues arise, there is always someone here with the legal and business acumen you need.

At Fillmore Riley, success happens on our clients’ terms, not ours. 

When you need answers, not options.

Our business-minded, results-focused team doesn’t get bogged down in minutiae. We cut to the chase. As busy professionals, you need your counsel to provide clarity and perspective on opportunities and challenges — clear and concise advice and a path to move forward. You need certainty in your team and in your strategy. Unexpected problems will arise. We anticipate these issues. We’re always in your corner and we’ll identify potential pitfalls before they become problems.

At Fillmore Riley, clients come to us to get the job done no matter how challenging or daunting. With a clear directive, we empower you to make smart, pragmatic and strategic decisions to achieve your goals — and we will be with you every step of the way. 

When you need it right, the first time.

We hold ourselves to extremely high standards of quality and integrity and we provide the perspective and planning required for you to achieve any undertaking. As a top-tier law firm, we are called into matters and mandates where this is no margin for error and success is the only option. We pair our deep knowledge of the law, our clients, and the nuances of the specific matter at hand to come up with sound, strategic and effective solutions.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur, owner-operator of a large conglomerate or in-house counsel at one of Canada’s largest insurance companies, when the stakes are high and the chips are down, you can rely on Fillmore Riley to provide you with the best advice possible.

When you need it now, not tomorrow.

Sometimes, you need us to drop everything for you. In high-stakes situations, you need the acumen and attention of a team of professionals to make the deal happen or ensure a dispute doesn’t tarnish your company’s hard-earned reputation.

At Fillmore Riley, we understand urgency and pride ourselves on providing sound and strategic advice, quickly. As busy professionals, we know you don’t have the time to read a 30-page memo riddled with legalese, so we provide clear, concise and actionable advice that solves your problems or achieves your objectives. Understanding your business and your endgame upfront enables us to provide timely, tailored advice.

We’re here to get you to the finish line, and not overcomplicate things along the way.
