Your pleadings and briefs are arguably the most important communications you will have with the court, and possibly provide your best chance at persuasion. After all, even with oral argument, the court needs to understand your arguments and be on your side from the start. Further, if your case is at the dispositive stage, your written filings can be the difference between winning and losing.
You may have significant experience in trial practice and may be fully prepared for oral argument. However, you may not have the experience or skill set to prepare well-researched, persuasive arguments in writing. Alternatively, you may simply be too busy.
Fortunately, our team is made up of tireless and fastidious legal writers who can prepare compelling, well-researched, and expertly crafted pleadings and briefs that will convey your arguments clearly and convincingly. We love to dig into complex issues, swim deep in the law and formulate the most persuasive application of the law to the facts of your case. We do this in a manner which streamlines specialized concepts, eliminates surplus, and speaks the language the courts understand.
Our team is well trained in the art of persuasive and objective legal writing and draft high quality legal documents (such as pleadings, motions, briefs, memoranda of law, summaries and contracts).
We set and maintain high standards, requiring all our final written products to be works of art.
In many cases, our comprehensive legal research will act as a foundation for our legal writing, so that it will be followed up with a written product, in which we lay out the corresponding legal arguments coherently, comprehensively and logically. Common examples of this are a memorandum of law, a summary, and a brief (all of which are usually preceded by legal research). However, we can also draft certain legal documents without conducting legal research beforehand. Typical examples falling into this category include the drafting of pleadings, motions and contracts (which do not always require preceding legal research).
The following is an overview of some of the legal writing services we provide.

Legal Documents for Use in Court
We are skilled at preparing concise yet persuasive briefs that present the facts and law in a precise and straightforward, yet compelling manner. The process of preparing a brief is similar to a memorandum of law, except that these are intended to be persuasive, as the intended audience is a court. Before drafting a brief, you will provide us with the facts and any supporting documentation related to the matter. In turn, we will identify relevant issues, conduct legal research, and draft a high-quality brief, which will be sent to you for your review, signature, and submission to the court.
We understand the importance of articulating all available claims, defenses, and replies in a manner that anticipates and deters challenges. Fortunately, we can draft pleadings for all types of civil proceedings. This includes statements of claim, statements of defence, third party claims, motions, applications and affidavits. We will send the draft pleading to you for your review, signature, and submission to the court.
Legal Documents for Internal Office Use
Memorandum of Law
A memorandum of law is essentially an internal legal opinion rendered to your law firm on discrete legal issues that arise in the course of advising or representing a client. The process of drafting a memorandum of law begins with research into binding and persuasive case law, statutory provisions, regulatory issuances from administrative bodies and secondary sources. We then analyze the facts of the matter in light of the applicable law. The final memorandum of law will objectively analyze any specific legal issues or problems raised and answer any applicable questions posed. By drawing on insights and objective information obtained through a combined process of legal research and analysis, a memorandum of law will provide your law firm with vital legal insight which you can use to advise your client or develop a legal strategy.
A summary is an abridged version of a memorandum of law which contains a summary of the relevant information as a short opinion. This ensures easier and more concise access to the desired information.
Our team is skilled in drafting, reviewing, interpreting, and revising a broad range of common (and not-so-common) contracts, including those for business, personal or other use.
We are equally comfortable reviewing contracts that have been already drafted and can use our skills to strengthen the substance and structure of such contracts, elevating the quality and aligning them with the goals of your client.
In all cases, if you retain us to assist you with a contract drafting task, we promise to be thorough and accurate in our scope, clear in our language and efficient with our time.
Our contract drafting service is integrated with our legal research and legal analysis services. This allows us to draw on our team’s lateral thinking skills and experience, to anticipate and address common problems and pitfalls in contract drafting which could lead to unnecessary disputes and litigation. In fact, because we are continuously conducting legal research in respect to actual contractual litigation, we understand the end results of various types of contractual language (good and bad). We use that experience to assist in drafting contracts.
We also use advanced tools to facilitate smart and efficient contract drafting. This includes maintaining an electronic repository of high-quality contractual templates and precedents, covering a broad range of topics and subjects.
