*Additional time for sessions that extend after the end of a half-day or full day session (i.e., after 1:30pm or 5:30pm, as applicable) billed at $250/per hour, per party. Additional time for post-mediation work (such as continuation of negotiations) also billed at $250 per hour, per party. Hourly charges and expenses are discretionary and may be imposed.
All parties represented by the same attorney or law firm are considered a single party for the purposes of the mediation fee.
A typical full-day mediation begins at 9:30am, includes a working lunch and continues until completed. Mediations may be scheduled earlier or later at the request of the parties. While most sessions conclude by approximately 5:30pm, a session may extend into the evening as long as efforts seem to be productive.
Only a small percentage of cases require more than one mediation session. However, if subsequent sessions are needed, they will be scheduled by mutual consent of the parties. Second day mediations may be scheduled on an hourly basis at the request of the parties.
Fees are set on a case by case basis.
