Mann Lawyers LLP is a broad practice law firm delivering top-quality service to its clients in many fields, including business, commercial and residential real estate and commercial litigation, to name a few.

Michael Hebert and Cheryl Gerhardt McLuckie have extensive experience in environmental law and complex commercial litigation. Hebert’s early work in environmental litigation, starting with the 2000 case of Tridan v. Shell, 2002 Carswell Ont 1, 154 O.A.C. 1, 57 O.R. (3d) 503, created new remedies for parties whose land had been contaminated by others. This case has served as a benchmark for environmental litigation since its delivery and is still referred to on an ongoing basis in legal decisions and texts.

Hebert’s innovative approach to environmental law has been a constant throughout his career. He has been involved in numerous cases over the years that have resulted in leading decisions in the field. An environmental law team will prove to be an ideal complement to the firm’s existing practice areas. Hebert and his team have developed an extensive litigation practice and also provide ongoing advice and counsel to landowners and developers about general matters regarding environmental law and regulation.

Hebert’s and Gerhardt McLuckie’s extensive and lengthy experience in environmental law matters will provide timely, helpful and current assistance in allowing Mann Lawyers LLP clients to deal with all of the varied facets of environmental law that touch on life and business on a daily basis, including contaminated land and brownfield sites, municipal planning and land development with environmental issues, due diligence in complex real estate transactions, corporate and directors environmental liability and environmental appeals and approvals.

This evolving area of law is changing at a rapid pace and the firm recognizes that clients have an ongoing need for the latest information about current case law, government action and proposed legislative changes. Hebert and Gerhardt McLuckie have a pulse on the environmental world and are a great resource for clients.

Hebert has actively given back to the bar and ensured information about environmental law is disseminated by delivering excellent programs to members of the Law Society of Ontario, the Canadian Bar Association and the Ontario Bar Association.

Hebert also maintains an active commercial litigation practice in the areas of shareholder disputes, contract law, real estate disputes, construction, bankruptcy and insolvency.

Mann Lawyers LLP is very excited to welcome Hebert and Gerhardt McLuckie as the firm starts a new environmental law group. This new group will complement all the services Mann Lawyers currently provides to builders, developers and landowners in Ontario.

“Michael and Cheryl’s vast experience in environmental law and commercial litigation serve to bolster our commercial litigation group and make it one of the finest in the country,” says Mann Lawyers co-managing partner Andre Martin.
