Phase 1 - 

NO- COST CONSULTATION

Once a contractor, owner, or developer has determined there is a dispute and is facing a decision as to how to resolve that dispute as expeditiously, fairly, and economically as possible.  Anderson offers time and experience with a no cost consultation to discuss the options available.  They are: legal suit, The American Arbitration Association, The Alternative Dispute Resolution Systems, The Contractors Registrar Procedure, and independent mediation.  This initial analysis will provide the contractors with information that will allow them to make the next step to the best and most cost- effective way to proceed to resolution.


Phase 2- 

REPORT PREPARATION

Offer Anderson Mediation services, at a specific fee amount.  Prepare a report that would enable him to arrive at a decision as to which of these procedures is best to arrive at a neutral resolution.  This report would require my firm to:

  • Determine the nature of the dispute and the facts and issues pertinent to the case
  • Attempt to have a consultation with the other party to advise them of the advantages of evaluating and considering these same options that, in at least one case, require his attorney to ethically advise him of an option to the courts.
  • With the information thus obtained, and with possible consultation with the adjudicating organizations, recommend a procedure for resolution of the dispute
  • Present to the party, or parties, a comprehensive report evaluating the most fair and economical approach to the resolution of their differences with as little disruptive effect to the conduct of their normal course of business.  This report would also describe the role and value of their attorney in each of the choices.


Phase 3 -

PROCEED TO RESOLUTION\

When the party, or parties decide to further use of the services of Anderson Mediation, we would supervise the preparation and presenttion of the dispute to the chosen authority at an hourly fee.  Confidentiality, at all times, is observed.  The goal of Anderson Mediation is to bring the dispute to a fair, impartial, and economical resolution of the issues with a minimum expenditure of the principal's time, effort, and money.  To this end, we will function as either a neutral or an advocate as the parties determine.
