Our Experience

Business Mediation Vancouver brings over 35 years of dynamic business and shareholder conflict resolution experience to facilitate enduring results. We offer proactive and creative resolutions in a safe, calm, constructive and respectful environment for private, closely held and family businesses. Our advice may extend to the operational structure and personnel aspects of your business to the extent these are factors in your dispute.

Why Us?

Our structured approach is effective, fair, private and time-proven. We are legally trained and experienced, certified mediators, and all of our mediation services are offered pursuant to the Code of Ethics of the ADR Institute of Canada.


Mediation is cost efficient, flexible, respectful and confidential.

We are neutral third parties who are legally trained, experienced and ethical. We use an ‘understanding-based’ facilitation technique that encourages the development of increased understanding between parties and collaborative problem-solving. Our proven approach is principled, transparent and fair. 

Our objective is to use a totally voluntary process to help you find creative, 'win/win', solutions that address both the interests and the differences in the dispute.

We often recommend business mentoring boards or the implementation of 'Traction' as a means to address structural business dysfunction.



We offer mediation and facilitation services for business disputes including:


  • Partnership disputes

  • Shareholder disputes

We also facilitate mentoring boards for business owners and senior executives and the implementation of 'Traction', the comprehensive 'Entrepreneurial Operating System' designed to synchronize all of the pieces of your business to produce the results that you want.

  • Family company disputes
