Mediation and Arbitration are not the only way to resolve disputes. Often the parties simply need some information or a jump-start and they can resolve their own differences.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Neutral Investigation, Evaluation and Fact-finding: Objective assessments of conflicting versions of facts. Lawrie’s experience as a lawyer, mediator, and arbitrator, allows him to interview participants and witnesses thoroughly and to arrive at a sense of what probably occurred.
Advisory opinions: Objective but non-binding assessments of cases among parties. It may not be necessary to go to the expense of a formal adjudication. Lawrie can meet informally with both parties and give a sense of what would probably happen at that adjudication.
Facilitation: Facilitation of decision-making at meetings. Often contentious issues simply require a person to help meetings succeed. Lawrie has had extensive training and experience (and success) in this field.
