What It Costs
My fees are negotiable according to the circumstances of each case, but will always be agreed in advance and set out clearly in my engagement letter.
I am happy to agree project-based fees where that is practicable. Otherwise, fees for open-ended assignments will normally fall within the ranges set out in the table opposite.
It is my normal practice to ask for fees on account for assignments to be carried out outside the UK. Subject to that, fees for open-ended assignments will be invoiced monthly and are payable within 28 days of invoice.
Fees for time limited assignments are fixed and payable in advance. A full refund will be made if the assignment is cancelled more than 7 days in advance. Otherwise, a 50% cancellation charge will apply. Typical rates for a one day mediation are set out in the table opposite.
In all cases, travel, accommodation and other out of pocket expenses will be charged at cost, unless otherwise agreed. All charges are subject to UK VAT at the appropriate rate.
