Expedited Arbitration

ADR Chambers announces the launch of the brand new Expedited Arbitration Rules.

Expedited Arbitrations are fast and cheap.  And there’s no wiggle room.

There’s a fixed fee so parties know exactly what they’re paying.  The fee is $7,500 per party for everything including the arbitrator’s fees, the room rental fees and the administration fees.

There is a fixed time frame so parties know exactly how long the arbitration will take.  Arbitrations under the Expedited Arbitration Rules are concluded in under three months from the selection of the arbitrator to the written reasons.  Often faster. read on...

eVideo Mediation

ADR Chambers is pleased to announce the launch of eVideo mediation. 

Not everyone involved in a dispute is in the same city. The cost and time of traveling out of town for a mediation can be a real impediment to scheduling and proceeding with a mediation.  Now there’s a solution. eVideo mediations allow parties and lawyers to have a mediation in real time where people are in different cities.

Participants can see each other online, hear each other, exchange documents and jointly draft settlement agreements. All you need is a computer. We take care of the rest.  read on...

ADR Chambers Banking Ombuds Office Approved as an External complaints Body for Banks by Government 

On Friday, June 5, the Canadian Minister of Finance, pursuant to s. 455.01(1) of the Bank Act, approved ADR Chambers Banking Ombuds Office (ADRBO) as an external complaints body for banking complaints.
 
ADRBO has investigated consumer disputes against banks since 2008 and currently investigates disputes about services provided by the Royal Bank of Canada, TD Bank Group and DirectCash Bank.  ADRBO has a roster of experienced banking investigators who conduct neutral and unbiased investigations about complaints against the banks, when the complaints cannot be resolved by the banks’ internal processes. ADRBO investigators interview the complainants and relevant bank employees, review the relevant documents, and produce a fair and reasoned report that may recommend compensation for a customer if the investigator is of the view that compensation is appropriate.
