Where the amount in issue exceeds £500,000 or where there are complex issues or more than three parties, the mediator’s fee will be individually assessed after discussion with the parties.

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

The Administration Fee

The Juris Administration Fee is £120 per party. 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 mediation
  • If the parties wish, Juris will reserve rooms for the mediation

Payment

When the mediation is booked, Juris will invoice the parties for (1) the administration fee and (2) the hearing fee. This invoice must be paid upon receipt to secure the mediator’s services for the case. If there are any additional invoices for fees and/or expenses, these must be paid on receipt.

Notes

The parties are responsible for the cost of rooms, catering and other arrangements for the hearing but these may be arranged with the assistance of Juris.
