Anyone who has ever been involved in a lawsuit knows what a nightmare litigation can be.
eQuibbly's mission is to provide a simple, private and inexpensive way for individuals and companies to resolve disputes without the aggravation and expense of litigating in court. Persons of all economic means should be able to present their argument to an independent, unbiased, and qualified third-party, who will help uncover the truth, weigh the facts, and arrive at an equitable and legally-binding resolution that is enforceable in a court of law.
eQuibbly has assembled a team of highly respected Judges, who presided over trials in courts of law in the U.S. and Canada, to resolve cases on eQuibbly. The whole process takes place online in one secure location where the parties explain their disagreement, upload evidence, answer the Judge's questions, and receive an official legally-binding judgment.
Lance Soskin founded eQuibbly after witnessing how painfully slow, mind-boggling complicated, and prohibitively expensive traditional methods of litigation and dispute settlement typically are. He wondered how many people had abandoned a legitimate dispute, conceded to an adversary, or pursued a resolution in court to the point of becoming financially destitute since few, if any, alternatives were available.
After completing Law & MBA degrees at Osgoode Hall Law School and the Schulich School of Business, Lance articled with the law firm Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt, was called to the Bar and subsequently worked as an investment banker for Scotia Capital in Toronto and the former Merrill Lynch in New York in both Mergers and Acquisitions and Corporate Finance. Since then Lance has pursued other entrepreneurial ventures and also held management positions in various companies.
