ARBITRATION FEES

Arbitrators’ Fees

Each arbitrator sets his or her own fees for all arbitration services provided. The table below sets out all fees.

(1) Hourly Fees

Many of the arbitrator’s services will be billed at an hourly rate. Thus, fees for initial conferences, case management conferences, preparatory reading for the hearing, preparation of the Award and all other non-specified services will be billed hourly at the rate shown.

(2) Hearing Fee

The hearing fee is the fee charged for each hearing day or portion of a hearing day.

(3) Minimum Fee

Each arbitrator has a minimum fee against which all hourly and hearing fees are credited. Thus, in the event that an arbitration resolves without a full hearing, the minimum fee will be due even if the hourly and/or hearing fees add up to a lesser amount.

(4) Commitment Fee

The Commitment Fee is security for the arbitrator’s services for the scheduled arbitration hearing dates. It is the sum of the hearing fee plus all refresher fees for the estimated length of the arbitration. This fee is shared equally by the parties unless otherwise agreed and is credited against the total fees for the arbitration. The Commitment Fee must be deposited with Juris once the Arbitration Hearing is scheduled.

Final Accounting

Once the Final Award has been prepared, Juris will invoice the parties as directed by the award for the amount of any outstanding fees. This final accounting will take into account the Minimum Fee and credit will be given for the deposited Commitment Fee.

Notes:

  1. The parties are responsible for the cost of rooms, catering and other arrangements for the Arbitration hearing but these may be arranged with the assistance of Juris.
  2. The fees quoted are for standard cases. Where the amount in issue exceeds £500,000 or where there are complex issues or more than three parties, the Arbitrator’s fees will be individually assessed.
  3. The Hearing Fee for the first and any subsequent day of hearing of the Arbitration is due even if the hearing lasts for less than a full day.
  4. The initial conference is where the Arbitrator confers with the parties to decide how the Arbitration should be conducted. It may be conducted in person, by email or by telephone.
  5. A case management conference is where the Arbitrator resolves any pre-hearing issues between the parties (e.g. exchange of documents). Conferences may be conducted in person, by email or by telephone.
