Hull & Hull LLP named in top ten Canadian boutique firms

Ontario-based Hull & Hull LLP has this year’s Canadian Lawyer Top 10 Boutiques in Wills, Estates and Trusts rankings

Online PR News – 09-March-2021 – Toronto, ON – Ontario firm Hull & Hull LLP has been recognized in Canadian Lawyer’s Top 10 Boutiques in Wills, Estates and Trusts rankings. This prestigious list spotlights Canada’s leading boutique law firms in the area of wills, estates and trust.

“When you’re dealing with a deadly pandemic that is more fatal to the elderly than most others, the law surrounding wills, estates and trusts can come sharply into focus. This year’s winners of Canadian Lawyer’s Top 10 Boutiques in Wills, Estates and Trusts had a lot to deal with this year,” says the Canadian Lawyer team. “The COVID-19 pandemic had many clients wondering what they should be doing to get their affairs in order should they happen to fall ill, or even worse. Lawyers have always stressed the importance of estate planning, but over the past year, more clients and their family members took that advice to heart. Add to this the inability to have in-person meetings, figuring out ways to carry on business virtually while providing stellar service kept lawyers at our top firms busy.”

For more than 50 years, Hull & Hull LLP has been a leader in all aspects of estate, trust and capacity law. The firm has acted in Canada’s largest and most complex estates cases, including at the Supreme Court of Canada, and its lawyers have written some of the leading texts on estate law. Among the certified specialists in estate and trust law and civil litigation, Hull & Hull LLP’s team includes a former chief justice of Ontario.

Hull & Hull’s services, however, extend beyond the hard facts of a case. “We are also sensitive to the needs of clients who often approach us when dealing with what is already an extremely difficult and stressful time of their lives,” says associate Nick Esterbauer. That ethos was established by the firm’s co-founder, Rodney Hull, who was one of the first lawyers in Canada to specialize in estate and trust issues, and his son, co-founder Ian M. Hull. “We draw on our established expertise but remain highly engaged in the development of the law and new strategies to assist in providing clients with the best service possible,” Esterbauer said.
