spacerThe cost of mediation

Mediation can be tailored to suit the means and needs of the parties and the nature of the dispute.

Cambridge Civil Mediation’s charges vary according to the value of the dispute and the length of the mediation.  Usually a three or four hour mediation is appropriate in a small case and an all day mediation in a more substantial case.  Mediations can also take two or more days if necessary or be spaced over a period of time.  Fee quotations are given specifically for each individual dispute before any party commits to mediation. We will design the process for larger or more complicated cases – especially multi-party cases – allowing more time or a different approach.

As well as the cost of the mediation itself, CCM’s fees include preparation and travelling time plus travel costs, setting up the mediation and handling all pre-mediation arrangements; any venue and refreshment costs are charged separately. If the parties have solicitors, it is often possible for one side or the other to host the mediation at their solicitors’ offices. If not, CCM will arrange a suitable venue and pass on the cost to the parties involved, subject to their prior approval.




Why mediate?

The parties may feel that they have had their “day in court”, that they have been listened to and understood, by the other side and by the mediator.
