Municipal and Expropriation Law
Municipal law is a complex area of law often involving multi-faceted expertise, multiple tiers of government and far reaching legislation and policy. Rodrigues Paiva LLP acts for municipalities, developers, property owners and corporations faced with complex and fundamental municipal issues.
The lawyers at Rodrigues Paiva LLP are experienced advocates before the Ontario Municipal Board, Committee of Adjustment and Superior Court of Justice in relation to land use planning appeals, development charge matters, expropriation compensation claims, by-law challenges and general land development matters. We also assist clients in navigating the newly formed Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (“LPAT”) and Toronto Local Appeal Body (“TLAB”). We are dedicated to resolving municipal law matters in Toronto and throughout the GTA, Waterloo Region and throughout Southwestern Ontario.
We strive to build the strongest possible case for our clients and have extensive professional relationships with knowledgeable and litigation-tested expert witnesses. We believe in thorough but efficient case preparation and make no compromises in advancing our clients’ interests. We only settle matters if a satisfactory outcome can be reached without a hearing.
