Lawyer in Montreal, Maurice Lasry

Mediation and Negotiation

Mediation, a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), focuses on aiding two or more disputing parties to reach an agreement. The mediator's role as the neutral third party is to encourage dialogue between the parties and ensure that the talks stay on course towards the reaching of a settlement. The legal matters brought before a mediator often involve business disputes and civil law matters.

Mediation Offers You Many Benefits Over Litigation

Choosing to resolve your dispute through mediation offers you a number of advantages over litigation: it saves you money, time, and puts you right in the driver's seat by giving you total control over the process. Whereas litigation results in a binding judgement over your dispute, in mediation the parties decide for themselves whether or not they agree to the settlement. The result is a "win-win" outcome for all parties involved.

Mr. Lasry is called upon by the Quebec Justice Ministry to act as an official mediator on litigious cases. Because the court system is already overburdened, mediation helps to alleviate this situation by bringing you a faster resolution to your case.
