I am a member of the CMC Fixed Fee Mediation Scheme which helps avoid cost uncertainty and assists with budgeting. The level of fees is determined by the total value of the dispute.
If there is no financial benefit, and considered appropriate and reasonable, my mediation service will be offered at no cost to each party in the dispute.
Fixed Fee Mediation for disputes below £50,000
The mediation may be undertaken in person or by telephone/video, although there is a presumption that mediations of 2 hours or less will be done by telephone/video.
Fees will be paid by each party before commencement of mediation and exclusive of VAT.
