Testimonials for Stephen Kelly

“We were very pleased with the arbitration presided over by Mr. Kelly. He handled difficult witnesses very well while ensuring both that the process was fair and that the witnesses appreciated the limits of what was actually in dispute and within the jurisdiction of an arbitration under the agreement in question.

Mr. Kelly’s decision was well written, detailed and addressed the issues in dispute clearly. The losing party challenged our application for an order enforcing the judgement, which challenge was not successful in large part due to the quality of the written decision.We will use Mr. Kelly again without hesitation.”

– Tony Fleming, Cunningham Swan (Kingston, ON)


“I have a diverse litigation practice and have relied on Steve’s skills as a mediator to assist in resolving disputes involving LTD insurance claims, tort claims, and construction litigation. Steve is engaged in the process. He actively listens to the clients and the lawyers during the breakout sessions and works hard to get everyone onto common ground. When a colleague requests a recommendation in Eastern Ontario for a mediator, I never hesitate to suggest Steve as someone who can get the job done.”
