Civil Roster Mediator Details

I have extensive experience in business disputes and issues involving Partnerships, Shareholders and Founders, Landlord and Tenant as well as the Mining Industry.
As a business lawyer for over 30 years, my experience has shown that mediation is a powerful way to resolve business disputes, with benefits as to cost, flexibility, timing and confidentiality. My approach is to help the parties to creatively and efficiently find practical business solutions to their disputes, keeping in mind their long term goals.

I have dealt with all levels of Mining, from staking claims, early exploration, financing, joint ventures to operating mines. I am also experienced in Landlord and Tenant disputes. I provide both in person and online mediation services.

I have international business experience including US, Australia, UK, Eastern and Western Europe, Asia, Mexico, Costa Rica and Papua New Guinea.

I maintain the following credentials:

Civil Roster Mediator, Mediate BC
