Experienced Lawyers in
Mediation, Arbitration & Litigation

Don’t face your legal

challenges alone.

Barriston combines the advocacy skills of our Litigation counsel with the support of our other practice departments before, during, and after litigation is commenced to ensure efficiency, and to minimize costs and delays. Whether conducted in a courtroom, or through conciliation, mediation, or arbitration, we can help you achieve your strategic aims.

 

Business owners and leaders need to stay focused on their No. 1 priority: running their businesses. Corporate and commercial litigation and disputes are taxing and time-consuming. Barriston has extensive experience in the full range of corporate and commercial trial litigation and alternative dispute resolution. Our lawyers have appeared before all levels of trial and appellate courts and administrative tribunals.

Mediation can be analytical or interest-based. Our Mediator will consider each party’s particular interests and needs in the mediation session, directing the discussion to each of the participant’s needs, but at the same time ensuring that the considered resolution is within a reasonable and supportable legal framework.

All Mediators at Barriston Resolutions Services have completed extensive training in mediation techniques and practices. The mediator is trained to assist the parties to communicate effectively to honour their own process. The Mediator does not involve him or herself in evaluating each party’s case, but works with each party to move to a compromise dealing with some or all of the issues after allowing each party the opportunity to express to the other his or her position.

In Arbitration, we determine the issues between you and the other side in a pseudo court-like process. The difference is that you determine the rules. While in court you may require many preliminary attendances, you can avoid that with arbitration. Together with your qualified arbitrator, you and the other side will meet to discuss not just the process, but the manner in which you may wish to proceed. You can agree on how evidence will be introduced to the process, the timing and dates that are flexible and can be arranged to your convenience.

At times, people are unable to reach an agreement with negotiation and mediation, so arbitration may occur if you cannot resolve one or more of the mediated issues. As you are the only people appearing in front of the Arbitrator, there is minimal delay or wasted time. It is an efficient way to determine issues that cannot be agreed to through negotiation or mediation, but attendance at mediation is not a prerequisite to arbitration. The Arbitrator will hear the evidence from you and your witnesses, consider submissions from you or your counsel and make a decision that can be incorporated in a summary manner into a court order. This is an efficient and practical approach.

“Barriston Law provides peace of mind by offering clients an alternative to toxic litigation. We are here to help resolve issues so you can move on with your life.” ~ Thomas Dart
