Who's Who Legal Canada - Arbitration

Mr Richler has over 35 years of experience in commercial dispute resolution as trial and arbitration counsel, arbitrator (domestic and international) and mediator. In January 2016, he joined J Brian Casey at Bay Street Chambers in order to devote his time exclusively to acting as an arbitrator and mediator.

Before establishing his neutral arbitration and mediation practice, Mr Richler was a senior partner in Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP, practising out of that firm’s Toronto office. He obtained his civil and common law degrees at McGill Law School and was called to the Ontario bar in 1980. He obtained a diploma in international commercial arbitration from the CIArb in 2008 and is designated as a fellow in that institute. Also, Mr Richler is a fellow of the Canadian College of Construction Lawyers and was, while he practiced as counsel, a fellow of Litigation Counsel of America.

Mr Richler has been appointed to several arbitral tribunals as sole arbitrator, chair and party appointee, and he has chaired two ICC arbitrations seated in the United States. He has been named to the ICDR Canadian and International arbitration rosters, and is a member of the arbitration committee of ICC Canada, the LCIA and ADR Institute of Canada.

Mr Richler arbitration appointments include cases in the following areas: general commercial, construction, procurement, shareholder and partnership disputes, contract interpretation and rectification, technology, real estate, property values and rent assessments, intellectual property and technology, professional negligence, and maritime law.

Mr Richler has long been an advocate of the use of arbitration as an effective means of resolving commercial disputes. He has authored a number of articles and papers, and he has lectured on this subject. Mr Richler was a founding member and later Board member of the Toronto Commercial Arbitration Society, the mandate of which is to promote the use of commercial arbitration and Toronto as a venue for domestic and international arbitrations.

Mr Richler is committed to the creative, efficient and fair conduct of arbitrations and mediations, focused on working with parties and their counsel to achieve that result.

WWL says: Joel Richler is highlighted by sources as a “superb arbitrator” who chairs domestic and international arbitrations involving commercial disputes.
