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 adjudicative tribunal on the continent - for more than 25 years.
As a public and private sector Mediator and Adjudicator, I have helped settled thousands of claims involving individual and collective employment-based rights; civil and commercial business actions, across jurisdictions and borders.
As an experienced Law Firm GM and COO, I offer a highly enlightened governance philosophy driven by modern service, resource, financial, IT, pricing and investment models.
My Experience is Broad.
My Approach is Informed.
My Perspective is Optimal.
