Meet The Team
Zevi Rosenzweig was called to the bar in 2003. From his articling days until leaving his full-time law practice to develop Zed Mediations Inc., Zevi practiced almost exclusively in an insurance defence practice with exposure to tort claims, accident benefit claims, priority disputes, LTD claims and property claims. When not in a conflict, he dabbled in some plaintiff side personal injury claims. Zevi juniored for one of the city’s reknowned mediators and knew early on in his career that he wanted to mediate once he gained enough experience and a reputation in the field of insurance law. He enjoys working to serve others and sees this not only as a religious duty but a good principle by which to live. Zevi credits his early success at mediating to his friendly and warm personality and his ability to create a rapport with all parties early on in the mediation. When not mediating, Zevi plays the role of Dad to his five boys. On a nightly basis, he can be found at various hockey arenas around the city; sometimes behind the bench and sometimes as a spectator. He even gets to play hockey himself once in a while. Zevi enjoys rocking out with the “Shul of Rock” as their lead singer and singing in the BAYT Synagogue Choir. In the fall, Zevi dons the teal and orange as he cheers on his beloved Miami Dolphins. Zevi enjoys working closely with his beautiful wife Aura who acts as his part-time booking co-ordinator and administrative assistant.

“Mr. Rosenzweig was tireless in his efforts in facilitaing a resolution of the matter…..was also quite pleasant throughout the process which certainly assisted in creating a rapport with both the Plaintiff and the representative of the Defendant.”
“Zevi has conducted several mediations for me, which have resulted in settlements. I found Zevi to be prepared, committed and skillful in his new role as mediator.”
“I had very low anticipations as to whether it might be settled. In addition, my co-defendant, insurer, was intransigent and started the process wishing to make a zero contribution. The mediation was scheduled for one half day. It went 6 hours and settled. It settled largely as a result of the persistence and tenacity of Zevi. I thought he did a great job and I would recommend him. In addition, his fees were incredibly reasonable.”
