Arbitration and Mediation

Alternative dispute resolution is a key method for resolving business disputes. Our lawyers view arbitration and mediation as central dispute-resolution disciplines, and appreciate both the similarities and differences they have with litigation in the civil courts.

We have broad experience with domestic and international arbitration in all forms and in a broad range of industries, including automotive, aviation, construction and infrastructure, energy, finance, insurance, investment, partnership and shareholder disputes, telecommunications and transportation. This includes experience with ad hoc arbitrations, as well as arbitrations under the rules of the leading Canadian and international arbitral institutions.

We also have extensive experience in arbitration-related court proceedings, including stay/referral motions, appointment and removal of arbitrators, interim measures, jurisdictional challenges, challenges to and appeals from arbitral awards, and recognition and enforcement proceedings.
