CUSP (Case Unilateral Submission Program)
CUSP was created for ADR situations when just 1 side submits a case to SSAM. Our staff will facilitate conversations between all sides. We will define the issues and attempt to facilitate agreement to commence mediation or arbitration. While this process may be time consuming, and require numerous conversations, and sometimes even result in the parties coming to resolution pre-ADR, there is no charge for this service.
CAP (Cost Amelioration Program)
For cases where the amount in dispute is limited, making the traditional cost of mediation impractical for a plaintiff, we have a reduced pricing structure.
One to One
An excellent program for when plaintiff’s counsel gives us a list of 5 – 25 cases against one carrier and our team goes to work to facilitate one to one dedicated mediation day(s) to move these cases to closure.
When one side needs an evidentiary exchange from the other before being ready to mediate (medicals, radiological films, documents, etc.), our DP program service will manage and effectuate that exchange, at no cost to the parties.
PSM Program (Pre-Suit Mediation)
Before a suit, but after a claim is made to an insurance carrier, our PSM program manager ensures necessary information is exchanged in preparation for this early stage but significant cost saving mediation.
Mass Torts Division
For Mass Torts and Class Actions, SSAM has significant experience in creating programs to navigate the complexities inherent in mass claims and resolutions.
Mediation & Arbitration
SSAM offers traditional mediation & arbitration, utilizing a wide range of techniques and practices to deliver successful settlements for our clients.
