ARBITRATION FEES

The cost of your arbitration comprises the arbitrator’s fee and an administration fee. The arbitrator’s fee includes both a hearing fee for each hearing day and hourly fees for other services provided. The parties will share the fees and any expenses equally unless otherwise agreed. The following explains the services you receive for these fees.

Where the amount in issue exceeds £500,000 (€500,000 for Republic of Ireland cases), or where there are complex issues or more than three parties, the Arbitrator’s fee will be set on an individual basis after discussion with the parties.

If the Arbitrator is required to travel more than 25 miles from the nearest Juris office, the parties must share the arbitrator’s reasonable travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses.

The Administration Fee

The Juris Administration Fee is £120 per party (€150 per party for Republic of Ireland cases). This includes the following:

  • Convenient online booking and payment
  • Professional guidance and support throughout the process
  • Use of the Juris server to upload, serve and display documents for your evaluation
  • Juris assistance with room and catering reservation, if requested.

Payment

When the arbitration hearing is set, Juris will invoice the parties for (1) the administration fee and (2) the arbitration fee, which will comprise the daily hearing fee multiplied by the number of estimated hearing days. This invoice must be paid upon receipt to secure the arbitrator’s services for the case. There will be additional invoices for the arbitrator’s hourly fees and expenses, which must also be paid on receipt and the final invoice must be paid before the arbitration award is issued.

Notes:

  1. The parties are responsible for the cost of rooms, catering and other arrangements for the hearing whether booked directly or with the assistance of Juris.
  2. Please see the full Terms and Conditions for payment and cancellation requirements.
