Ellie Vilendrer is an Arbitrator who has been practicing ADR since 2013. In addition to private practice, she also serves on the FINRA arbitration panel. See her bio here.
We offer a daily (up to 6 hours) Arbitration Rate that includes one preliminary telephonic hearing, for $3,000. Any additional service (i.e. preparation, deliberation, and award writing) or time exceeding the 6th hour, is billed at our hourly rate of $450. Fees are equally divided among the parties.
For in-person arbitrations, there will be a Facility Fee charged at the rate charged to us (typically about $30-$40/hr) unless we can make other less expensive arrangements.
All parties must sign an Agreement to Arbitrate and pay a deposit before any date is booked.
If an arbitration final hearing is canceled less than 2 days prior to the scheduled start of the arbitration, we will charge a cancellation fee equal to 50% of the daily rate times the number of days canceled plus fees otherwise earned before the date of notice of cancellation.
