Frequently Asked Questions

How can I retain SILAW for my Business Law needs?

It always starts with a meeting, in person or remote, where we will have a chance to discuss your needs and problems to see whether we are the right fit for your specific needs. If that is the case, we will send you a retainer agreement and when you accept, we will begin working for you. Contact Us to book your Complimentary Consultation Session.

How can I retain SILAW for my Business Immigration needs?

It often starts with a Complimentary Business Immigration Assessment that we will conduct for you free of charge. In this process we will evaluate the information you provide to formulate tailored strategies for your needs and expectations. We then will schedule a Complimentary Consultation Session wherein we share the results of the assessment with you and will determine if we are the right fit for each other. If we mutually reach a decision to form a professional relationship, we will send you a retainer agreement and when you accept and sign, we will begin working for you.

What type of Fee Arrangement can I expect from SILAW?

In general we have two types of fee arrangements at SILAW:

  • Hourly Rate: In this arrangement we will charge you for each hour (or portion of an hour) that we work on your case. The rate will be specified in your Retainer Agreement.
  • Flat Fee: In this arrangement we will charge you a single fixed fee for services that we specify in your Retainer Agreement. This fixed fee is independent of the actual hours we work to render you the services we specify in the Retainer Agreement.

In the interest of predictability and transparency we always consider offering our clients a Flat Fee arrangement. This usually happens for simpler cases where we can anticipate the amount of work required, but for more complex cases where there are many variables and complications, we resort to hourly rate. Even in these cases we will provide you with our best assessment on the work required.

What can I expect from the Complimentary Business Immigration Assessment?

There are many different business immigration programs and they are often complicated to navigate, and determine whether they are a good match for your needs. We fill that gap by providing you with an assessment that will analyse your situation against many different business immigration programs to identify the one(s) that best suit your needs and expectations.

The results of this assessment, among other things, will be discussed with you during a scheduled Complimentary Consultation Session.

Why should I trust SILAW?

There are many reasons. You can read about some of them here or here. Also SILAW Professional Corporation is a licensed corporation by the Law Society of Ontario and as such it is held to its professional and ethical rules of conduct. You can read about these rules here.

But the BEST way to answer this question is to see us in action. For better insights to judge our value, consult as many professionals as you can, then Contact Us and decide for yourself.

Do you guarantee results?

Based on the rules of our governing body (the Law Society of Ontario) we cannot use contingency billing or guarantee results in an immigration matter. But we can, and we do guarantee that we will provide the best possible client service and legal representation.

We will always honestly assess your case (both good and bad) and set realistic expectations during your consultation. We’ll discuss our goals and objectives but no duly licensed attorney can ever guarantee how a case will conclude.

As an alternative to looking for guaranteed results we recommend you look for an attorney who most likely will succeed. Because in immigration matters your life and future is at stake, and getting a refund is little consolation. Mistakes and omissions in this area of law will gravely jeopardize your future chances. Therefore it is very important you choose your representation carefully.
