Construction is science-based, and when disputes arise, an effective neutral mediator must possess an understanding of legal contract obligations as well as a scientific knowledge of the construction process.
Dr. Tarassoly leads Rubicon’s mediation team. She is an attorney, a licensed civil and structural engineer, and a registered contractor (A& B licenses and Hazmat) in the state of California.
What sets Rubicon apart from other mediating outfits is that our mediators are highly qualified contractors and engineers who are technical experts in their respective fields.
Often, the parties derive at the appropriate allocation of costs among them only after they employ the services of experts at high expenses and in addition to the mediators’ fees. At Rubicon, as engineers and contractors, our mediators can privately evaluate the technical strength of the parties’ claims and provide them the opportunity to make informed decisions leading to equitable settlements at a lower cost and a faster pace.
