The practice offers hourly, 1/2 day, daily, and longer term contract rates depending on areas of practice required and options selected. The fees charged will be directly proportional to the size and complexity of the dispute.
In practice this enables you to be able to solve your dispute problems professionally in a timely manner for relatively small cost as compared with litigation, typically from £450 per party including DMC Administration fee for a time limited mediation, and from £750 per party for an all day mediation.
Currently Dispute Mediation Consultancy does not charge VAT on its administration fee which offers you significant savings over other mediation providers.
The fees detailed in the selected areas to the left of this panel are intended as a guide to potential costs, but in each case, fees will be discussed and agreed with yourself and/or your legal representatives by means of a Letter of Appointment prior to the commissioning of any work.
We also offer a flexible 'time-cost-quality', fee structure where you can choose a fee that suits your needs. Whilst always providing a professional service we can adjust fees for example:
1. if you require a shortened report with limitations of scope, then the fee can be discounted accordingly;
2. if you require an extended more comprehensive report the fee will attract a surcharge over and above our standard rate;
3. if you require a faster service than the norm then we will try and accommodate the request but the fee will attract a surcharge over and above our standard rate;
4. if you do not have a time constraint then this could reflect in the fee being discounted accordingly.
In summary we believe our service fees are here to meet your needs.
Typically mediations take place in a central location, comprising high quality offices providing a suite of 2 or 3 rooms and rest area for the duration of the meeting. Facilities generally have ample parking and/or good transport access. The accommodation will have full business facilities such as Wi-Fi, photocopying and fax. Each party in the dispute will have their own meeting room to ensure privacy & confidentiality and the mediator will move between these rooms throughout the mediation. Light refreshments will be provided by The Dispute Mediation Consultancy.
Additional charges will apply on an at cost basis and this will be shared between the parties.
