Fees and Other Costs
Doomsday Mediation (AKA Last Minute Mediation - Online or In person)
A Doomsday Mediation is a late notice mediation where there is a court hearing set within two weeks of the mediation day. My day rate for a Doomsday Mediation is fixed at £975 plus VAT per party for a full day or £556.25 plus VAT per party for a half day. The fee includes up to 50 pages of 'reading in' per party. Additional hours are charged at £160 plus VAT per hour.
Regular Commercial Mediation (Online or In person)
My day rate for a regular commercial mediation is fixed at £895 plus VAT per party. The fee includes up to 50 pages of 'reading in' per party. Additional hours are charged at £120 plus VAT per hour. For a half day my rate is £475 per party plus VAT.
Online Small Claims Mediation (up to £75,000)
My fixed fee for cases up to £25,000 is £200 plus VAT per party for up to three hours of online time. For disputes between £25,001 and £75,000 my fixed fee is £300 plus VAT per party for up to three hours of online time.
For in person mediation mileage is charged at 42ppm with other travel (trains, taxis, flights etc) charged at cost. If accommodation is necessary then it will be limited to £120 per night unless otherwise agreed. The parties are responsible for any venue and associated costs (such as refreshments, printing and copying, wifi etc).
If the mediation takes place online no 'other costs' are required and I will provide access to a suitable mediation platform for the mediation. I will provide a pre mediation awareness session for each party (free of charge) in order that they are comfortable using the chosen mediation platform.
