Nadarajalingam v. Zhao, 2018 ONSC 849
Back to all cases
Represented the defendant in claims arising from a real estate development project. The defendant loaned the plaintiff $4.8 million to contribute to development costs, and received a promissory note in return. When the defendant demanded payment, the plaintiff failed to pay, defaulted on the loan and brought an injunction to keep the defendant from enforcing on the promissory note. The firm successfully converted the matter to an expedited trial in which the client was entirely successful. The Court rejected the plaintiff's rectification claim, found that he had defaulted on the loan and awarded full indemnity costs to the client.
