The Future of Dispute Resolution

Almitra provides alternative dispute resolution services for developers, architects and consulting engineers in Canada. With over 40 years’ experience and as the lead author of the Guideline on Conduct of Engineering Reviews, Almitra is uniquely positioned to be the alternative to litigation when conflicts arise. Because of our background in four key areas: Engineering, Owners Representation, Quasi-Judiciary and Community Development, we know that under the right conditions we can be the bridge. We can help to lower your costs, save you time, help each party agree on what is fair, and preserve your reputation.

The Single Best Thing

Developers

We have represented you the owner many times over the last 30 years, and we are not conflicted about our shared goal to avoid litigation. We are not litigators and if ADR fails it means we fail. We want to help you save time and money and ideally, finish the project with your team intact. We understand how designers think.

Designers

Design was Almitra’s core business until April 2014. McPhail was Chair of the sub-committee that developed the method to avoid litigation through improved communication. Your number one asset always has been and always will be your reputation. We understand and live that with you.

When you are adjusting a construction dispute you can be confident that Almitra has worn the hat of each of the parties to the dispute many times. We are not conflicted about our shared goal to avoid litigation. We are not litigators and if ADR fails it means we fail.
