When you can't resolve an issue, don't take them to court - take them to mediation instead. That's the recommendation of 88 per cent of Canadian lawyers surveyed recently.

The survey was developed by law staffing firm The Affiliates and includes responses from 100 lawyers in Canada's 500 biggest law firms.
