When insurers sneeze, insurance defence firms are likely to catch a cold. There are only a handful of other practice areas that are as sensitive to the ebbs and flows of an industry controlled by a small number of corporations. And while recent developments in the insurance world might appear to be trivial from the outside, they’re having an outsized effect on the law firms that inhabit that domain.

b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_2014_May_litigation.jpgLitigation boutiques face increasingly stiff competition from each other as well as from larger firms; those named in Canadian Lawyer’s Top 10 have proven themselves in a field with many high performing players.

But “large businesses are bringing very significant mandates to the boutiques,” he adds.

b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_2013_April_thumbs-up_blue.jpgLong before they get to court, personal injury boutiques face a foe every bit as tough as the stingiest of insurers: each other. “It’s very competitive, and it’s going to become even more so,” says Alan Farrer, managing partner of Thomson Rogers in Toronto. His firm recently teamed up with fellow boutiques Oatley Vigmond Personal Injury Lawyers LLP and McLeish Orlando LLP to form the Personal Injury Alliance.

Drilling down - part 1

Written by
b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-CANADIANLawyer_2013_January_thumbs-up.jpgIn days gone by, an insurance defence firm may have sounded like a pretty niche outfit. But as boutiques in the area enter a second generation, they’re drilling down to even more precise specializations in order to stand out from the crowd. Most of the firms that made our list this year now have at least two decades of experience behind them, many after breaking away from larger, full-service firms. “It’s a mature market, and it’s not a new area of law, so the gross revenue is not increasing dramatically,” says Eric Dolden, co-founder of Vancouver firm Dolden Wallace Folick LLP. “You’re always going to have your auto cases and house fires, but that’s kind of static. The growth is in new areas where you couldn’t get insurance 10 years ago.”
