InnovADR actually invests its own resources and usually pays upfront for the fees of the ADR Neutrals and any ADR institutions itself, aligning its interests with those of all the parties. It does not foster litigation between the parties, but promotes settlement, convening the parties and taking the risk of the dispute not settling upon itself, by paying these fees upfront and working on a “no settlement, no fee” basis.  This demonstrates its confidence in its recommendations and the processes it helps the parties to design and implement. Other than a small administrative fee payable only after an agreement is signed (the 4th step in InnovADR’s process), the parties do not pay InnovADR anything unless and until the case settles.  This effectively makes working with InnovADR risk free for each disputant.
