  • Feedback is Important

    It is important to provide people with feedback in the workplace. Feedback should be positive or in the form of constructive criticism. Purely negative feedback accomplishes nothing and is the sign of a poor corporate culture.

    What is a Stop Notice?

    A stop notice is a statutory form of notice that is a very powerful remedy for contractors and suppliers to ensure payment.

  • Close is Not Good Enough When it Comes to Real Estate Commissions

  • What Will Happen at My Mediation?


    A mediation is an opportunity for you to try to resolve your dispute by discussion, negotiation, and not having a decision forced down your throat. Usually a mediator will split you up at some point in the process. Sometimes we'll start all together, us and the other side in the same room.

  • Success

    As we head into the end of the year it is a good time to reflect on the past year and plan for the coming year. Was your 2018 a success?
