Mediation

Full Service Mediation: Except as provided below, all Mediations, including Franchise mediations: $825 non-refundable deposit; $1,650 total selection fee. The fee covers the CPR full vetting process, which includes a conference call with the parties to help CPR develop a list of nominees who will be vetted for conflicts purposes and from which the parties can choose their mediator.

Streamlined Mediator Appointment: For disputes where the parties wish CPR to choose a mediator for them after having submitted a Request for a Streamlined Appointment. CPR will make the selection based on the information provided by the parties and vet the candidate for conflicts purposes before the appointment: $375/party payable up front.

Flat Fee Mediation Program: For disputes filed with CPR with less than $500,000 at issue, users may opt to have their matter mediated for a flat fee of $3,500, to be split among the parties ($2,500 to be split among the parties when a CPR member is involved in the dispute). This amount will entitle the user to one day of mediation (up to 10 hours, including preparation). Thereafter, an hourly rate of $350 will apply, representing a significant discount from the rates normally charged by CPR’s experienced panelists for a mediation.
