As more and more disputes are being resolved prior to reaching the litigation stage, clients can rely on Hughes Amys to guide you strategically and expertly through mediation, arbitration, and other forms of alternative dispute resolutions (ADR). These alternative avenues can be extremely effective in obtaining desired outcomes in a more timely and cost-effective way than by litigation.
Our experienced lawyers have had specialized training in the field of mediation, arbitration and ADR. In our Hamilton office, Jarvis Scott has mediated hundreds of disputes involving most of the insurers and plaintiff firms in the province of Ontario and Jack Fitch was retained to assist in the design and implementation of an alternative dispute program created to address claims of sexual and physical abuse arising from the operation of a training school. Richard Horak in our Toronto office is a senior insurance litigator who is also regularly retained to provide mediation services.
