I’m pleased to have been awarded the Chartered Med-Arb designation by the ADR Institute of Canada. This compliments my Chartered Mediator and Chartered Arbitrator designations and reflects my experience in several Med-Arb appointments.
The ADR Institute of Canada describes the med-arb as:
‘Med-Arb is not merely the merging of separate mediation and arbitration processes, but a unique process designed to meet the needs of particular disputants. It involves nuances and complexities that can be fine-tuned to the needs of the parties as a customized dispute resolution process, which requires a high level of practitioner competence to do successfully.’
The designation ‘…is unique in the ADR world and provides clearly defined criteria for those practitioners who wish to obtain it. This in turn provides users of ADR services with confidence that they can rely on the specific and specialized knowledge and experience of individuals with the designation.’
