MRS-LogoMediator Referral Service

Following the close of the Los Angeles Superior Court’s mediation program, the Beverly Hills Bar Association began receiving requests to establish a mediator referral service that would provide mediators to businesses and individuals in Beverly Hills and the surrounding communities. It was in response to these requests that the Beverly Hills Bar Association launched its Mediator Referral Service Program.

The Beverly Hills Bar Association Mediator Referral Service Program provides mediators for a broad array of substantive legal matters. The basic component parts of the Mediator Referral Service are as follows.

Disputes in which the amount in controversy is $25,000 or less:

  • Two free hours of mediator services
  • After the first two hours of mediation, the mediator will begin to charge a per hour fee not to exceed $400
  • The parties to the mediation will share the costs of the mediator equally
  • Each side to the mediation will pay an administrative fee of $100 to BHBA
  • Upon receipt of the funds from the parties the BHBA, in consideration of its services, will deduct 10% of the total fees (net of credit card expenses) received and pay the balance to the respective mediator.

Disputes in which the amount in controversy is more than $25,000:

  • No free hours of mediator services
  • The mediator will charge a per hour fee not to exceed $400
  • Each side to the mediation will pay an administrative fee of $100 to BHBA
  • Upon receipt of the funds from the parties the BHBA, in consideration of its services, will deduct 10% of the total fees (net of credit card expenses) received and pay the balance to the respective mediator.

The BHBA looks forward to serving your mediation needs and those of your clients and contacts.
