I charge a minimum fee of two hours per mediation, no matter how long the mediation actually lasts. I view counsel as responsible for their client’s portion of the mediation fees and consider myself retained by you to serve as the mediator in this matter. If you’re not willing to that responsibility, I would request that you make arrangements in advance with your client to deposit with me an appropriate amount for payment of the mediation fees. To avoid confusion, I define a “party” as all parties who are represented by the same counsel.
If the mediation is cancelled or rescheduled less than 48 hours (Monday-Friday) prior to the scheduled session, each party will be billed for their portion of the minimum fee.
An invoice for the mediation will be issued immediately following the mediation conference and is due upon receipt. Payments should be made in accordance with the payment instructions on the invoice.
