HOWARD B. KOHN, LL.B.

 

Howard Kohn is a well-known senior counsel who has a particular expertise in environmental law. He is a co-author of a book entitled: “Environmental Harm: Civil Actions and Compensation”, Butterworth’s, Toronto, 1996.

Howard is also known for his handling of cases involving construction disputes, personal injury cases, insurance issues, as well as professional negligence claims involving engineers, architects, paralegals, brokers and medical clinics.

AS A MEDIATOR

While still in the practice of law, Howard has decided to offer his services as a Mediator with the belief that his expertise and experience will be of assistance to help parties in dispute find an agreed resolution and avoid the cost of protracted litigation. Having spent years handling his own mediations, Howard understands what an effective Neutral Mediator should do to provide assisted negotiation for disputing parties. In addition to mediation, he has attended numerous pre-trials before Judges of the Superior Courts in Ontario. He understands the differences in the two processes. As a Mediator he will be facilitative in approach but evaluative when evaluation is needed.
