MEDIATIONS

MLA offers mediation services nationwide in a wide variety of subject matter areas for two-party, multi-party and class action matters. Our areas of experience are listed below.

RESOLVING OBJECTIONS
TO CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENTS

MLA will contact class members who object to a proposed settlement and work to resolve all objections prior to the final fairness hearing or any subsequent appeal. In addition to avoiding the substantial delays caused by objector appeals, engaging MLA to resolve class objections enhances the fairness of the process for the court, eliminates possible conflicts arising from counsel’s efforts to resolve objections, and allows class and defense counsel to focus on the final approval hearing rather than addressing objectors.

ATTORNEYS’ FEE DISPUTES

In class actions, it is not unusual for plaintiffs’ attorneys to disagree on the apportionment of fees awarded by the court. Given our substantial experience with class action matters and fee-related issues, MLA is ideally suited for mediating prompt, efficient and fair resolutions to all such disputes.
