McLaren and Innovative Dispute Resolution Ltd. have been in business for over thirty years offering clients arbitration, mediation, facilitation, consulting and investigative services. For over thirty years, McLaren has been involved in labour arbitrations involving both federal and provincial matters.
McLaren has significant experience and expertise in anti-doping including cases involving nandrolone, anabolic agents, identical urine samples, r-EPO, equine growth hormones, blood transfusions, and various illicit substances.
Through the Ad Hoc Panel of the Court of Arbitration of Sport, McLaren has proudly participated in four Olympic Games during which he resolved disputes pertaining to, amongst other things, anti-doping cases, athlete eligibility, and intellectual property rights. Specifically, he acted as Arbitrator for the following summer and winter Olympic Games.
McLaren’s mediation practice evolved as a natural extension to his arbitration experience. Parties to disputes often comment on McLaren’s creativity, ability to encourage discussion and identify areas of commonality and, ultimately, to facilitate the resolution of their dispute.
