Litigation is costly, unpredictable and stressful. Mediation is a cost-effective alternative to litigation, where the parties can work together with the help of a neutral mediator to resolve their disputes. No claim is too large, too complex or too small to benefit from the mediation process.

At Pinto Shekib Dispute Resolution, we conduct mediations throughout Ontario. We work with the parties to better understand the legal and emotional dimensions of their conflict, with the goal of developing practical solutions to their complicated legal problems.  We deliver effective, fair and balanced mediation services in a wide range of areas, including in employment law, estates disputes, real estate disputes and insurance matters.
