Who We Are

In 1987 a group of 12 colleagues and friends left a full service downtown firm to start an exclusively advocacy based practice. At the time, the concept was unique and innovative. Genest Murray is one of the country’s original boutique litigation firms. The intent was to provide clients with quality, cost-effective and timely legal advice while providing an accessible and collegial environment for lawyers, staff and clients accessing the firm. The concept was successful. Genest Murray became a “go-to” firm for litigation needs. Genest Murray established itself as a pre-eminent litigation firm. Over the years, its lawyers have gone on to important positions in business, government, have contributed to the Bar through membership in various legal organizations, including being elected Treasurer of the Law Society of Upper Canada, and have been appointed as Judges both to the Ontario Superior Court and Ontario Court of Appeal.

Today, Genest Murray continues to strive to represent the ideals and objectives of the Firm’s inception. It represents its clients with a focus on accessibility and providing timely, quality and innovative solution focussed legal services. Many of our clients are longstanding, having chosen Genest Murray as their litigation counsel for many years. Our commitment to strong and responsive client relationships is an important part of the firm.
