With offices in Toronto and Kingston, Ontario, Placet Dispute Resolution provides a range of dispute resolution services, with an emphasis on mediation and conflict management training, to clients throughout Ontario. We provide options to individuals and businesses who wish to effectively resolve conflicts that are frustrating business relationships and exhausting precious resources. Resolving these conflicts using the court system can be prohibitively expensive and time consuming. We offer a cost-effective, time-saving alternative to litigation.
A Question of Justice….
Many clients come to alternative dispute resolution providers with “justice” as a primary interest. How can we define justice? Can it be measured in dollar terms? Is it an end result of public vindication? What are some of the reasons that people who have been through the litigation process feel that they have not found justice?
We believe that justice is a uniquely personal concept. In our practice, we find that clients who retain control over the resolution of their dispute often report feeling that justice had been served.
More often than not, communication breaks down early in the life of a conflict. Placet’s mediation process develops and maintains an environment in which all parties can feel comfortable freely communicating their needs and goals. We do not render judgment. Rather, we help people in conflict develop creative solutions and assist in implementing consensual, comprehensive and durable agreements.
The Bottom Line…
Mediation offers satisfactions that the litigation system cannot hope to offer, including:
- Low cost
- Mutually acceptable results
- Control of outcome.
At Placet, we believe that the best person to make important decision about your life and your business is you. If your dispute needs to be decided by a third party (i.e. a judge or arbitrator) it will be because you feel this is the very best decision you can make. Until that day, if it ever comes, Placet Dispute Resolution professionals will work as hard as possible to support you in the conflict resolution process.
