Located in downtown Toronto, Gelgoot & Partners LLP is a boutique firm specializing in all aspects of family law. The partners, Daryl Gelgoot, Vanessa Amyot and Jen-Yii Liew, have practiced exclusively in this area throughout their careers.
We are seasoned litigators who regularly appear at all levels of court in Ontario, and have been involved in many precedent-setting cases, including in the Supreme Court of Canada. We also resolve many family law cases out of court and through mediation / arbitration.
Complex and novel cases
Gelgoot and Partners routinely assists clients to resolve particularly complex and novel cases involving custody and access disputes, mobility applications, Hague Convention issues, child and spousal support claims, complex property division, challenging and upholding domestic contracts, and cross-border issues. Among other things, we are also experienced in the preparation and negotiation of cohabitation agreements, marriage contracts, and separation agreements.
An individual approach
At Gelgoot and Partners, we recognize that every case is unique and therefore deserves an individual approach. We seek to make optimal use of our skills and limit costs by employing a team approach, where appropriate. All members of the firm play a role in providing the best possible service to our clients.
Our firm is also fortunate to have one of Canada’s most distinguished and successful family lawyers acting as counsel to the firm. Harold Niman, formerly of Niman Gelgoot and Associates, has more than 40 years experience in family law, and is available to offer invaluable advice and expertise to our clients.
At Gelgoot and Partners, we pride ourselves on offering exceptional legal service and support to our clients.
