Cost is dependent on length, location and value of the dispute. Both parties will share the cost of the mediation. The cost of mediation is much lower than entering into court preceding’s. Once we have discussed the details of the mediation we will be happy to give you a quote.

Mediators that work with Centre for Resolution are normally more than happy to work at the rates set by the Ministry of Justice for UK mediation.

The last time Centre for Resolution’s website was updated the Ministry of Justice fee scale were as follows:

Amount you are claiming Fees per party Length of session
£5000 or less* £50
1 hour
2 hours
£5000 to £15,000 £300 3 hours
£15,000 - £50,000** £425 4 hours
* The mediator / mediation provider should agree in advance whether this should be dealt with in one or two hours. For the one-hour rate the option is available to facilitate settlement over the telephone if appropriate, and if the parties agree.
** If the claim is for more than £50,000, the fees will need to be agreed with the organisation providing the mediation. 

The Ministry of Justice fee scale is subject to change.

If during the mediation the money you are claiming or value increases the mediator is within their rights to invoice you at the appropriate rate. Please note that our mediators are not obliged to accept mediation at the Ministry of Justice fee scale. It is your responsibility to agree with the mediator whether or not they will accept the Ministry of Justice fee scale for your mediation.

Time preparing for the mediation before the meeting is included in the above costs. Additional costs will be incurred for expenses such as venue, travel and sundry items. 

Workplace Mediation:

The cost of workplace mediation is to be agreed and paid by the employer. The way in which workplace mediation is conducted will vary depending on how willing parties are to meet one another. Workplace mediations cost £450 per half day (1-3 hours) inclusive of expenses, or £700 per full day (3-6 hours) inclusive of expenses. In workplace mediations sometimes the parties prefer to spread the mediation across several days. In the event that this is the preferred option, the mediator would often charge their hourly rate of £150 plus expenses. 

Overseas International Mediations:

Fees are to be agreed between the mediator and the parties.
