Laura is a fluently bilingual  adjudicator, mediator, arbitrator and former ombudsman with over 20 years professional experience.

  • Bruneau Group is different.

    We complement legal counsel’s critical knowledge with our experience and expertise.

    We treat the work as seriously and as carefully as legal counsel and the courts did in the years leading to the settlement.

    We make effective use of information technology for tailored, optimized, accurate and reliable data warehousing and online claims processing.

    Our services are provided with absolute neutrality, responsiveness, transparency for the claimants, legal counsel and the courts.

    Working with us means no problems or hassles and no distractions for legal counsel and the courts whose focus is to move on to the next case with full confidence that Bruneau Group is handling every detail of the administration expertly and efficiently.

    We deliver bilingual, focussed service, with no bureaucracy and no wasted effort.
