Parties in the energy industry and others involved in commercial disputes are increasingly turning to alternative methods of resolving disputes. Their interest is in achieving resolution more efficiently and effectively than can typically be done in litigation.
To meet those needs, the Honourable Cliff O’Brien, Q.C., Jack Marshall, Q.C., Frank Foran, Q.C. of Borden Ladner Gervais LLP and Dan McDonald, Q.C. of Burnet, Duckworth & Palmer LLP have formed Calgary Energy and Commercial Arbitrators (“CECA”).
CECA provides parties with access to these leading arbitrators and mediators based in Calgary, each of whom has decades of experience in dispute resolution, particularly involving the energy industry but more generally involving commercial disputes of all types. Each has a very extensive background as litigation counsel and has acted as both counsel or neutral in many arbitrations and mediations. They are available to accept appointments to either arbitrate or mediate disputes.
