Murray Miskin Mediation Services

Let’s get to work and settle now.

Canadian lawyer, mediator and arbitrator, Murray H. Miskin, who has over 35 years of civil litigation trial practice experience is providing mediation services in construction, estate,  insurance, franchise, banking, personal injury and other civil litigation matters on a regular basis.  He also mediates complex condominium disputes applying his experience as a condominium resident and Condominium Board President.  It really helps to have a mediator who has both the generic skills in mediation plus legal knowledge and the specialized experience of the subject of the dispute for mediation.

Murray Miskin has been an active arbitrator since his first appointment as a Tribunal Chair in 1987.  In February 1998 Murray took comprehensive Mediation training at Osgoode Hall Law School and began to do work as a Mediator mostly with personal injury cases.  He went on to take advanced training from Christopher Moore of Boulder, Colorado.  He was in high demand on the Toronto Superior Court Roster of Mediators which he joined in 1999.  He left the Roster in 2003 when the demand for his services became too high to the point where it interfered with the law practice.  The law practice is still quite busy with help from Murray’s son Daniel Miskin, a recent law school graduate. The law practice is focused on dispute resolution work.  Conflict resolution activities such as mediation and arbitration has been given top priority in scheduling with flexibility in dates. This allows for mediation to be arranged where requested without a long wait for available dates.

Most of Murray Miskin’s work as a lawyer has been in the field of insurance law where he has over 30 years of experience.  He served as Chair of the Insurance Law Section of the Ontario Bar Association  from 2000 to 2001 and the National Insurance Law Section of the Canadian Bar Association from 2003 to 2004.  Murray Miskin is  ideally suited to provide insurance mediation services. He is recognized for his expertise in personal injury claims, which he now mediates on a regular basis.  Murray is the winner of an Acquisition International Law Firm Award for 2012 for his work as a personal injury mediator.  This award was for “Canadian Personal Injury Mediator of the Year”.  He also won the 2013 award for “Ontario Arbitrator of the Year”.

Murray Miskin offers hourly, half-day and full day rates for Mediation Services and does not charge for travel in the Greater Toronto area. He is also available with no travel expense charge for work in the Cobourg, Belleville, Kingston and Ottawa areas.  Work done outside of Southern Ontario and internationally will be billed for travel time and expense.   If you are looking for a highly skilled experienced lawyer to mediate a case you sometimes have to book up to a year ahead.  Murray Miskin has organized his schedule in a way that still keeps most of his time open for work on the law practice which now focuses on class action pharmaceutical cases and US asbestos trust claims brought on behalf of Canadians. This work has time flexibility so that mediations can be booked on short and medium term notice to accommodate the parties and their lawyers.  If you want to mediate within three months we guarantee we will find you one or more available dates.  We can usually book shorter term and have no problem booking dates over three months away if that what you are seeking.  CALL 416-492-0989 to discuss your mediation needs and to book a date.  Angela is our ADR coordinator.  Press 1 on our phone system to speak with Murray or press 3 to speak with Angela.
