Notice of Action Plan: 2020

On July 1st, 2019, I started my own settlement counsel-mediation practice; Rose Dispute Resolution and Mitchell Rose Law.  It’s been a whirlwind since.  That momentum is fueling my action plan for 2020: Communication. Connection. Collaboration.

So even though, under the Rules, one isn’t supposed to serve a Notice of Action without a Statement of Claim, I no longer litigate, so I resolved to break some rules. I’m therefore serving you with this non-litigious Notice of Action! (not to be followed by a Claim).



  • In Dispute–my newsletter containing the latest, essential information for lawyers about negotiation, settlement, mediation and arbitration–will debut soon. I warmly invite you to get on the mailing list for that and future blog posts on topics like Why Smoking Can Save Your Mediation, How Not to Fire an Employee, and Nasty Neighbours.

BONUS:  When you sign up, you will receive my soon-to-be-released e-book, 40 Mediation Advocacy Tips for Ontario Lawyers. Watch this website. Better yet, get on my mailing list!



  • Advanced Mediation Advocacy is a natural sequel to my first program, but it also stands alone (with more CPD hours) and will be ready to run in the Spring. Please watch my website for updates. Or, to put your name on a wait list for more information, please connect with my practice assistant.



If you like my rare speeches, here are some upcoming dates when I’m speaking. Hope to see you!

  • Effective Mediation Advocacy, Toronto Lawyers Association, January 30. To register, click here.
  • Settlement Counsel: Why Two Heads Are Better Than One, ADRIO 2020, June 4. I’m co-presenting with my friend and colleague, Paul Feldman. For information, click here.


Finally, I’m always looking to collaborate with you and settle your client’s case at mediation. For my available dates and rates, please visit my website or contact my practice assistant. I continue to accommodate travel and offer flexible mediation hours, including early mornings, evenings, and some weekends. After all, this is ADR… so why should mediation have courthouse hours?

Have an active and prosperous 2020!   Mitch
