As an expert in employment law, dispute resolution and litigation management, I can tell you this:
Litigation is costly, inefficient, emotional, unpredictable - and unecessary.
I know this, as fact, because I have devoted my career to providing a responsive, modern and value apparent approach to the resolution of employment and business issues. In fact, I directed the resolution of more than 100k legal cases at the most sophisticated and effective employment and labour law tribunal on the continent - for more than 25 years.
As both a public and private Mediator and Adjudicator, I have settled thousands of claims dealing with individual and collective employment-based rights; civil and commercial actions, across all jurisdictions .
My experience is broad. My approach is informed. My perspective is optimal.
