St Philips Stone can provide Mediators of varying degrees of experience in order to meet requirements and budget.

Mediator's fees for mediation depend on the value of the claim for quantified claims. All mediation fees are calculated on the basis of a base fee per party for the day of the mediation (10am to 6pm) and an additional hourly rate per party for time that goes beyond the mediation day. The fee also includes up to 5 hours preparation, in the unlikely event that the mediator requires longer than 5 hours preparation time the parties will be informed and rates can be discussed.

All fees are subject to VAT at the prevailing rate.
