Ross Wells
38 Ahrens Street West
Kitchener, ON - Ontario   N2H4B7

519 498 2756
Degrees/Designations - B.A.; LL.B.
Practice Areas - Business/Commercial, Employment, Human Rights and Labour
Practice Description - I offer mediation of employment and commercial disputes, and assist organizations or privately held corporations address issues such as succession or internal disputes. Mediation in such circumstances offers a private and confidential alternative to litigation in the public arena.
Background - In the fields of labour and employment, my experience has been atypical for an Ontario lawyer. I acted for many years almost exclusively for unions and employees, and subsequently almost exclusively for employers, in union and non-union shops. This experience on “both sides”, forms my understanding of the needs and goals of parties to employment and labour disputes.
Having practiced in Toronto for over a decade, I relocated in the 1990’s to Waterloo Region, from which I served clients throughout Southwestern Ontario and the GTA.
In practice I was recognized in labour and employment law by Lexpert and Best Lawyers in Canada. I have represented parties through arbitration, trials and appeals including several cases heard by the Supreme Court of Canada, but in most cases I represented parties in settlement. That is what I seek to do in offering my services as a mediator: help parties and their lawyers find an acceptable road to settlement if one exists.
Fees - Outline of fees available on request.

During the COVID-19 pandemic some mediators may only be conducting mediations by video or telephone conference.

If you are seeking an “in person” mediation on a mediator's available date, you should discuss with that mediator whether s/he will conduct an “in person” mediation on that date.
