Changing the Mediation Model

Fairbank ADR provides a comprehensive, hands-on approach to mediation. Specifically, our mediation services are based on a flat fee which includes:

  1. One pre-mediation telephonic or in-person (only in Los Angeles) conference of up to three (3) hours each, conducted separately with each of the sides involved in the dispute;

  2. Pre-mediation preparation, including review and analysis of briefs and any other case-related materials, exhibits and cited case law submitted by the parties; and

  3. A one-day mediation session including all participants.

One of Fairbank ADR's trademarks is to persistently follow up through joint and separate conference calls if the case does not settle by the end of the one-day mediation session. All consecutive second-day in-person mediation sessions are billed at a reduced flat fee. Any additional follow-up work is billed on an hourly basis.
