Business Law

At Watson & Company our business is to help your business achieve success. No matter what size or type of business, the support and advice of good legal representation is an invaluable asset to growth. Let us provide you with experienced and efficient commercial law services.

Wills & Estates

The importance of having an estate plan cannot be overemphasized. It is one of the most significant means you have of protecting your loved ones and easing a difficult time for them. Our lawyers have the experience necessary to create a plan that ensures that your wishes regarding your estate are clear and will be followed. Having an estate plan in place ensures a smooth transition of your assets.

Civil & Commercial Litigation

We are aware that legal disputes can be stressful and unpredictable and our goal is to achieve a timely and cost-effective resolution whenever possible. Our civil litigation lawyers have the experience to step in and protect our clients’ interests.

Criminal Law & Private Prosecutions

Being charged with a criminal offence can lead to serious and long-lasting consequences for a person’s freedom, financial security and personal life. Given the complexity of the criminal justice system, having legal counsel with knowledge of the court process, legal defenses, and sentencing is most often the best way to avoid or minimize those consequences.

Real Estate

There are many things to consider when buying or selling a home. Our real estate lawyers have the necessary experience to guide you through the details of buying, selling or refinancing your property. We represent and advise purchasers, sellers and investors.

Family Law

Families often require an objective and professional perspective to help resolve disputes that arise. We are committed to providing such a perspective to ensure a workable resolution and a healthy family life after separation.
