WHO WE ARE
Fridmar Professional Corporation (the “FPC“) opened shop in 2020 when its founder and principal lawyer, Dan Fridmar, decided to start a boutique practice offering assistance and support with Construction Law to members of the construction industry. Mr. Fridmar also offers services in Bankruptcy Law, Real Estate Litigation, and other areas of general litigation that are incidental to the construction industry.
MEET DAN FRIDMAR
Prior to starting the FPC, Dan developed his skills at a medium-sized, fast-paced law firm in Vaughan, Ontario. In a short time, Dan amassed a voluminous amount of experience in litigation, negotiation, and client management. In addition to his legal endeavours, Dan has spearheaded many academic initiatives, including authorship of legal blogs and articles, presenting at various professional development lectures for clients, and acting as a content-producer/course-designer at the Credit Institute of Canada. As such, Dan effectively implements the creativity obtained in his academia with the practical issues facing his clients.
Dan shaved-off a year of his undergraduate studies at York University by securing an early acceptance into Osgoode Hall Law School. He graduated from York University summa cum laude and received the Law Society Prize, an award recognizing the highest academic average in his graduating class. During his time at Osgoode, Dan was immersed in both curricular and extra-curricular activities – such as playing an active role in the Osgoode Mediation Clinic by volunteering as a mediator with the Toronto Small Claims Court and the North York community.
In his limited spare time, Dan loves to perform at Open-Mics with his guitar, contribute to the visual and theatrical arts, and mentor high school and university students. He is also heavily involved in the Russian-speaking Jewish community.
The FPC, with its zealous leader, aims to provide clients with affordable and creative solutions to even the most complicated of legal problems. By combining his legal, educational, and practical knowledge, Dan proudly provides all of the FPC’s clients with a tailored and bespoke solution to their individual legal and business needs.
The FPC is driven by three main values: Cost-Efficiency, Creativity, and Confidence.
While litigation might often feel as a jousting match between two parties to establish who has the deeper pockets, the FPC aims to offer clients efficient solutions to ensure that their goals are achieved in a cost-effective manner. Law might be based on a foundation of traditions and rigid rules, but, at the FPC, we strive to come to creative answers and think outside of the box. Finally, we understand that litigation, with its complexities and unknowns, is a major source of stress in the lives of many clients. As such, we hope to inspire confidence in our clients to rest easy and trust that the FPC has their cases under control.
