Fair Proposals

In cases in which one party is seeking money or other concessions from another party, such as in a lawsuit, a purchase or sale of an asset (such as real estate or an ownership interest in a business) or any similar form of exchange, this patented system allows each party to propose an outcome that it deems fair in a manner that is credible but nonprejudicial. The system can be used by mutual agreement or, by virtue of its asymmetrical structure, can be initiated and used by one party without having to secure the other party’s cooperation.

Unlike direct negotiation, mediation, and traditional sealed-bid arrangements, the system gives the initiating party a strong incentive to make a reasonable proposal at the outset of the process, and it deprives the other party of an incentive or excuse for failing to do the same prior to a fixed deadline. A party that proposes a reasonable outcome will either obtain that outcome or will, without having caused prejudice to its own bargaining position, be able to establish that the other side had walked away from a reasonable outcome that had been within its grasp.

Further information about this system, and access to a fully automated online version of the system that can be used to manage and resolve virtually any sort of a claim for money, may be obtained by clicking here.

   To find out more about Fair Proposals, or if you wish to gain access to other versions of the system that can be used in other contexts and in different ways, give us a call or send us an e-mail at fairproposals [at] fairoutcomes.com.
