Stuart Forbes, Q.C.

AS A MEDIATOR

Stuart Forbes is a leading senior litigation lawyer with years of trial and negotiation skills. Since his call to the Bar in 1966, Stuart has conducted over 200 cases before the trial courts and appeared at all levels of the courts in Ontario as well as the Supreme Court of Canada.

Stuart recognized early on that while there are cases which must proceed to court for various reasons, parties on both sides of a case need a skillful lawyer/negotiator to guide them toward settlements to avoid costly and protracted litigation.

From 1989 to 1992, as an adjunct to his regular practice as a trial lawyer, Stuart offered his services as a mediator. He was one of the first in the Province of Ontario to practise mediation. He also took a mediation course from CDR Associates in Colorado to enhance his mediation skills.

Stuart has decided to mainly focus on offering his services to the legal profession and the business community as a neutral mediator. He is well-known for his calm and patient approach to negotiation, which helps parties find a mutually agreed and lasting settlement.
