We defend our clients' rights and interests when they face court or regulatory action, especially when their commercial lives are at stake.
We defend clients in criminal prosecutions, including allegations of environmental damage, income tax evasion, securities fraud, work site accidents, and search warrant executions.
We protect clients from unfounded regulatory action in a range of industries such as IIROC, MFDA, BCSC, and Exchange registrants and issuers, real estate and mortgage professionals, accountants, lawyers, and health professionals.
Whether we work in commercial arbitrations, major class actions, or Supreme Court actions, we have successfully prosecuted major business disputes involving shareholder disputes, claims involving directors, proxy fights, shareholder dissents, major collections and debt recovery, injunctions and claims for and against government.
We want to be Canada’s most efficient litigation firm. To get there, we embrace cutting-edge technologies and manufacturing processes: artificial intelligence, probabilistic forecasting, lean manufacturing, Agile, and web-enabled customer experiences. We relentlessly work to meet or beat our turnaround targets, honour our fixed prices, and express clear probabilities and forecasts when clients ask us “what are our chances?”
Our list of accomplishments include:
A debtor owed us a substantial sum of money (a six-figure sum). We found out this person was about to liquidate their main asset without telling us, leaving us no realistic chance to ever get our money back. Ascendion Law worked around the clock to freeze the sale and eventually negotiated a quick settlement where we recovered all of the money owed to us. Ascendion was responsive, stayed on budget, and was highly effective."
“Chilwin Cheng is a critical thinker, with strong analytical abilities. He is not afraid to ask the tough questions – but at the same time – is a positive partner, whose active encouragement and support keep the end goal in mind. We were pleased to have Chilwin work with us to close some gaps in our planning and investing process. As a result, we gained a new awareness of how we could link and leverage our work for positive social change.”
"My regulator threatened disciplinary action against me for an innovative step I took to advance my clients' business interests. Chilwin, and the Ascendion Law team, set them straight - quickly, efficiently, and effectively. The regulator concluded their investigation without taking any action against me and the threat went away without disrupting my business and with no press. If you're a financial or real estate industry professional and your regulator is threatening you, you need Chilwin..”
