Introduction to Zoom Video Mediations and Bell teleConference Mediations For Ontario Civil Litigation
As we all adapt to the challenges and changes to our working life during the COVID-19 physical distancing, it is important that civil matters in Ottawa, Kingston, Toronto, Hamilton, London and throughout Ontario all proceed in a timely fashion. To that end, I am pleased to announce that I am utilizing Zoom Conferencing to conduct video mediations, as well as Bell Conferencing to conduct telephone conference mediations.
All participants attend the mediation conference, but by video or telephone rather than in-person. No travel is necessary. Instead of everyone convening in the same physical location, the participants join an online video or conference call meeting. For video mediation, all that is require is a high-speed internet connection or cellular data, and a device with a built-in microphone and video camera. Most laptops, cell phones and tablets will work. Our office will provide a link to join the conference and the participants may appear from their homes or offices. Full details and availability may be found at zubermediation.com.
If you are curious and would like to learn more about video mediations, I will be scheduling mock mediations for counsel on April 2-3, 2020 and April 6-8, 2020. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book a space. Please feel free to forward this blog post to any litigator who may be interested in our services.
We look forward to continuing to assist you using these technologies and I hope to see you again soon at an in-person mediation. Until then, I wish you all good health.
