Mediation fees

A classic question asked of mediators and a criticism of mediation is ‘why does nothing happen until the last hour?’ The reason for this is that the parties’ minds are focused on the time the mediation is due to end and they pace themselves accordingly.

There are many cases which do not need a whole day and can be resolved in a shorter period of time. Some can have a planned 4 hour time limit whilst others which are more complicated need longer. What ever the time period chosen for each case the parties will focus on that time period to utilise the mediation.

The following fees have been calculated using the idea noted above:

The 4 Hour mediation:

Each party would be responsible for a fee of £600.

If additional time is required each party would be responsible for fees of £80.00 per hour.

The 7 hour mediation:

Each party would be responsible for a fee of £800.

If additional time is required each party would be responsible for fees of £80.00 per hour.

Preparation and travelling times and costs are included in the above fees.

 Note: These fees are subject to VAT at the current rate at the time of invoicing
For International mediations an additional charge may be made for travel time.


Travel Charge:

Travel time is included in the above rates.


Expenses:

Travel, accommodation and other similar expenses are included in the above rates.


Payment:

Mediation fees are due for payment at least seven days before the mediation. Additional charges for expenses and extra time will be invoiced following the mediation and shall be paid within fourteen days of the date of invoice.


Cancellation Charges:

If the matter is subject to cancellation or postponement at least fourteen days before the mediation date, no fee will be due.

If cancellation occurs less than fourteen days before the set date, the full fee will be due.

If the mediation is postponed and takes place on a later date, 30% of the fee will be due, plus the full fee for the revised date.


Co-Mediation:

Fees for co-mediation of multi-party disputes are available on request.


Professional Indemnity Insurance:

A copy of the current Professional Liability Insurance (Towergate Insurance) is available upon request.


Complaints Procedure:

In the event of a complaint it shall be raised initially with me direct and then, in the absence of resolution, referred to the Civil Mediation Council’s Complaints Resolution Service (Tel:020 7636 4422).
