Commercial Mediation Services
Commercial mediation is a practical yet sophisticated process designed to address the real issues and obstacles behind conflict in reaching a commercially viable solution.
ADR Group's commercial mediators understand that for many individuals and organizations dispute resolution is a ‘distress purchase’. The cost in terms of business disruption and personal management time to manage conflict is often underestimated.
Our commercial mediation services provide an effective yet challenging alternative. The appointment of a professional third party neutral commercial mediator through the ADR Group will provide the structure within which a constructive and positive negotiation process can take place. The decision to settle and terms of agreement rest with the parties themselves, not the mediator and not a judge.
Employment and Workplace Mediation
Workplace mediation is a simple yet powerful process designed to help enhance all aspects of the modern working environment by recognizing the value of a positive work culture and productive relationships at work and so helping to avoid a dispute.
All organizations, whether in the public or private sector, value productive and positive workforce relationships. However, a dispute between employees or between employees and employers is a reality. Managing these relationships effectively with the support of a workplace mediator can reduce disputes and minimize the risk of defending a tribunal claim and the unnecessary cost of diverted management time.
is an essential and effective tool in the armoury of any person tasked with managing employee relations. By acting as a third party neutral facilitator, a workplace mediator can listen, ask questions and help explore solutions in a constructive and private process. Workplace mediation not only helps resolve conflict, it helps build bridges to better employee relations. ADR Group can help you achieve improved levels of staff productivity and retention.
Cost is a critical component in any professional service. We provide a preferred rate of $325 per hour for each of the first three hours and $400 per hour for each hour thereafter. All mediations require a 3 hour minimum.
Rates include reasonable preparation time and telephone follow-up. We request payment to be made upon the confirmation of the mediation session date. Fees are fully refundable until 10 business days prior to the scheduled mediation date.
Los Angeles County Chamber extends a special service to accommodate parties in court ordered mediation. The Chamber will conduct the mediation in our office and honor the same fee that the LASC ADR office charges. Our special rate is $150 per hour for the first three hours of mediation.
Any confirmed mediation session that is cancelled within 10 business days prior to the scheduled date may be charged the agreed upon rate for a three hour mediation session.
Time is money. Each dispute and case is unique in its own way, and requires different needs and resources; as a result no estimate of time can be precise.
