My mission is to deliver real value to you.
Each dispute is unique and I would welcome hearing from you so I can understand your dispute and provide an informed quotation.
What is included in Fee Quotation
Typically the mediation will take place over a single day, with normal working duration 10.00am to 5.00pm.
Where agreement feels close and a lengthening of the working day makes sense, any additional hours would be chargeable on an hourly rate basis.
If parties agree during the day that resolution is possible but would require meeting again on a second day, this would be quoted at the time.
Fees include normal preparation time of up to half a day, including any review of background information provided, telephone calls, discussions and administration; and some follow up post-mediation.
If exceptional preparation time is required, additional hours would be chargeable on an hourly rate basis.
It would be usual for each party to pay 50% each of the fees agreed.
What is not included in Fee Quotation
Fees exclude: travel and any accommodation expenses; cost of mediation venue hire; refreshments; and cost of a lawyer to advise or support on the day.
The fee is payable in full 7 working days prior to the agreed date for the mediation.
If notice of cancellation is given more than a week prior to the agreed date for the mediation, the fee is waived in full and any payments received would be returned within a week of notice being received.
If cancellation takes place in the final week prior to the agreed date for the mediation, a fee of 50% of the agreed fee shall be payable, with any repayments due being made within a week of notice being received.
Notice of cancellation shall be given in writing, and can come from by either party.
Please call me, David Fatkin, on 07900 552 108 to discuss your dispute and for a quotation.
Note: Very straight forward disputes are likely to require less than a full day, and quotations given would reflect this.
