ADR Chambers: Panel Members

Richard H. Krempulec, LL.M. (ADR)

Richard is an ADR Chambers panel mediator, arbitrator, and an investigator with the ADR Chambers Ombuds Office.

Richard has mediated a wide variety of disputes including issues concerning insurance coverage, contract interpretation, professional negligence, personal injury, property damage, and general commercial matters including car dealer franchises. His experience as an arbitrator is also in commercial matters including issues concerning insurance coverage, compensation issues and general contract interpretation. As an investigator, he investigates complaints made by customers against their bank, which have not been resolved by the bank, and makes recommendations as to the merits of the compliant and possible resolution.

Richard was in practice as a civil litigator for over 45 years. He was appointed as Queen's Counsel in 1978, certified as a specialist in civil litigator in 1988, and obtained a Master of Laws degree in Alternative Dispute Resolution from York University in 1999. Richard is the author of a loose leaf text entitled Property Damage Claims Under Commercial Insurance Policies, which is now updated annually by others. He has delivered papers and spoken on a wide variety of legal topics including the interpretations of commercial insurance policies and other commercial contracts.

Richard's approach to mediation is proactive. He encourages the parties to critically analyze not only the strength of their case but also its weakness so as to properly set a settlement range. The purpose is to encourage the parties to adopt an analytical approach and not a combative one thereby making the mediation process more cost efficient, increasing the chances of reaching a settlement, and far more pleasant.

ADR Chambers is Canada's largest group of Retired Judges, Barristers, Solicitors and other ADR Experts who are dedicated to the resolution of disputes in a private, expeditious and cost-effective manner. In addition to the Mediation and Arbitration services, ADR Chambers offers various and other services of alternative dispute resolution.
