Biographical

Blair’s practice for many years was focused on general civil litigation. However, in recent years he has served extensively as a labour arbitrator and as an arbitrator and mediator in commercial and other types of disputes.

Blair’s ADR practice commenced in 1997 on a small scale when he began to be selected periodically as an arbitrator in labour matters, primarily grievance arbitrations.

Over several years, Blair’s ADR practice grew to include grievance and interest arbitration matters in labour law and to include mediation of various types of grievances.

In addition, Blair has become actively involved as an arbitrator and mediator in various types of civil disputes (negligence, product liability and estate claims) and commercial disputes (shareholder disputes in closely held corporations and various types of breach of contract actions, including commercial lease disputes, commercial real estate development agreements and disputes over various types of restrictive covenants).
