Non Consumer Mediation Fees

AN APPOINTED MEDIATOR

  • If parties request that the Dispute Resolution Service (DRS) nominate a mediator on their behalf then the following charges indicated in the table below will be applied.
  • All of the figures in the table below are the fees per party and are subject to VAT if applicable.
  • The fees assume the mediation will complete within the day it begins. Different rates may apply if the mediation moves into a second day. Travel time will be charged to each party at £50.00 per hour.
  • The above fees do not include room hire, refreshments or secretarial charges if incurred. These outlays will be the responsibility of the parties equally between them unless otherwise agreed.
  • If the value of the dispute cannot be ascertained the Mediator’s charge to each party will be £80.00 per hour for the mediation and £50.00 per hour for preparation and travel.

CHOOSING YOUR OWN MEDIATOR

  • If parties select a mediator themselves then the parties will be required to agree the fees with the appointed mediator.
