Onex Corporation v. American Home Assurance Company

Geoff Adair acted for Onex Corporation in this hard fought directors and officers liability insurance case, recovering trial judgment against American Home Assurance Co. for $15 million USD (the full policy limits), and then successfully defending the trial judgment on appeal. The appeal followed protracted litigation, including a summary judgment motion, trial, two appeals to the Court of Appeal for Ontario, and two applications for leave to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada.
