Mediation Fees

Fairlead believes that the cost of mediation should be proportionate to the value in dispute. Subject to availability, we are able to provide suitable accommodation for mediation free of charge at our offices.

Our fees include appropriate preparation time. The fees we quote are for a full day mediation from 10am to 5pm and the price quoted is the price paid by each party to the mediation.

Amount in Dispute (£) Each Party Pays + VAT
Up to £50,000.00 £500.00
£50,001.00 – £150,000.00 £750.00
£150,001.00 – £250,000.00 £1,000.00
£250,001.00 – £500,000.00 £1,250.00
£500,001.00 – £1,000,000.00 £1,500.00

For sums in excess of the amounts quoted above or for disputes without a monetary value please call us for a quote.

The above fees do not include the following additional costs:

  1. Catering, if required (such as lunches/sandwiches) for mediation conducted at our offices.
  2. The cost of mediation accommodation at a location other than at our office.
  3. The mediator’s travel expenses if the mediation is at a location other than our offices.
  4. Additional mediator time after 5pm (if the parties wish to continue and the mediator agrees).  Additional time after 5pm is charged at a rate of £75 per hour (or part thereof) plus VAT per party.

If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
