I work collaboratively with clients and counsel in mediation, med-arb, and arbitration to deliver practical solutions to manage and resolve disputes in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
Based in the GTA, with a province-wide online practice, my work is focused on dispute resolution in corporate, commercial, condominium, estates, insurance (non-personal injury), and real estate (including Tarion disputes) and I have also mediated and arbitrated other types of disputes including construction, workplace, employment, family, multi-party, municipal infrastructure, and alternative energy/land use.
I hold the ADR Institute of Canada designations of Chartered Arbitrator and Chartered Mediator and was the first person to be granted their Chartered Med-Arb designation. I am also a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (FCIArb) in the U.K.
My mediation style ranges from facilitative to evaluative depending on the circumstances of the case, and the requests of the parties and their counsel. I encourage the use of med-arb as an integrated dispute resolution process in appropriate cases. In both med-arb and arbitration, my focus is on designing and managing a fair and efficient evidence-based process that is proportional to the dispute in question.
I often speak about ADR at webinars, conferences, and continuing education programs and have designed courses and programs for various colleges in Ontario. I have also been a part-time faculty member teaching ADR in the law school at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, and the co-author of ODR Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow., the first book on Online Dispute Resolution in Canada.
