Keeping Costs Manageable
At Consilia Mediation we speak to you first to assess your needs and quote on a case by case basis. We will be pleased to offer a fixed fee for a full day mediation (typically 10am until 6pm). An hourly charging rate of £200 plus VAT will be charged for additional time if the parties wish to continue the mediation after 6pm.
The quote may vary depending on a number of factors for example:-
- 1. The size and complexity of the dispute
- 2. The number of participants
- 3. Number of mediators
- 4. Location
- 5. Duration
The fixed fee will include:
Telephone calls with the solicitors or parties involved to identify the key issues, discuss preparation and to set up the mediation for the parties;
Reasonable preparation time (up to 4 hours);
The making of arrangements for the mediation including settling the agreement to mediate and other related documentation and correspondence;
Travel time if the mediation is within Yorkshire;
Any accommodation costs and travel outside Yorkshire are additional with mileage charged at 45p per mile;
The first 8 hours on the mediation day; and
Any follow up which may be required by phone or email, limited to a further hour.
The longer you remain in dispute, the more it is going to cost. As we emerge from lockdown, your case will be in a backlog of cases waiting for court hearings. The potential costs of failing to resolve your dispute are open ended – you will incur legal fees when you prepare your case for court and at the hearing itself and the Court is able to dictate how the costs of the case are to be met. Mediation is cost effective, quantifiable and allows you to resolve the dispute on your own terms so you can get back on with your life.
