The interests of your client may be best served by reaching a settlement, but you need to know when to make an offer or accept a settlement and have a clear understanding of the process, including the exceptions to mediation confidentiality. Join our expert faculty as they review the latest case law on the exceptions to “without prejudice” settlement privilege in the context of civil litigation, family law, and labour and employment, including the following key issues:

  • Strategic considerations: Rule 49 versus common law offers to settle
  • The application of the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in Bouvier in family mediations
  • Motions to enforce settlements
  • Mediation briefs and the assessment costs
  • Special exceptions to confidentiality
  • A lawyer’s ethical duties at mediation
