Construction is science-based and when disputes arise, an effective neutral mediator in addition to understanding legal contract obligations must have scientific knowledge of the construction process and the technical issues to assist the parties in achieving reasonable settlements.
What sets Rubicon apart from other mediating outfits is that our mediators are highly qualified contractors and engineers who are technical experts is their respective fields.
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.
Often, allocations of costs to the parties are realized only after parties enter costly litigations and employ the services of experts. At Rubicon, as engineers and contractors, our mediators can privately evaluate the technical strength of the parties claims for them, and provide them the opportunity to make informed decisions leading to equitable settlements.
