Alternative Dispute Resolution

Our lawyers are recognized as leaders in this field; an alternative to traditional litigation. We have significant experience as counsel in ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution), including arbitration and mediation. We have been involved in both domestic and international arbitrations across a wide range of business sectors and industries, including commercial disputes, construction, bodily injury, hospitality, insurance, pharmaceutical, real estate, media, and retail, in both ad hoc and institutional arbitration under the auspices of the leading arbitral institutions.

We are frequent speakers on various ADR-related issues, including when to consider arbitration and how to negotiate and draft the most effective arbitration agreements.

Based on our reputation, experience, and highest ethical standards, our lawyers are also often sought after to act as sole arbitrators, members of arbitral tribunals, or mediators in private disputes.

Our practice extends to the enforcement, in Québec, of foreign arbitral awards.
