Arbitrations are billed at the rate of $225.00 per party per hour. A non-refundable calendaring deposit of $3,600.00 ($1,800.00 per party) is required to schedule your arbitration. This non-refundable calendaring deposit will be credited toward all pre-arbitration work and the first day of the arbitration. Thirty days prior to the arbitration, the parties will be required to deposit an additional $3,600.00 per scheduled day of arbitration. Fees are divided equally between the parties unless otherwise awarded by the Arbitrator, or unless the arbitration agreement requires one party or the other to pay the costs, fees, and expenses of the arbitration.
- Weekend Sessions: Saturdays are available for mediation or arbitration sessions on our online calendar.
- Additional Sessions: A small number of complex, multi-party or other cases require more than one mediation session. In these situations, the parties may request that additional dates be held in advance to continue negotiations.
- Payment: Mediation fees are due prior to the mediation. Credit cards accepted. Checks should be made payable to Chris Antcliff or Antcliff Mediation, P.L.L.C.
- Expenses: Travel expenses (i.e., hotel, rental car, meals, taxis, etc.) will be billed and submitted for purposes of reimbursement within thirty (30) days of completion of the mediation or arbitration.
Payment of the mediation fee is requested prior to the start of the mediation. If the mediation is canceled or re-scheduled more than 10 business days from the scheduled mediation date, Antcliff Mediation, P.L.L.C. will refund each party’s entire mediation fee. However, if the mediation is cancelled or rescheduled less than 10 business days from the scheduled mediation date, only 50% of each party’s mediation fee will be refunded, and if the mediation is cancelled or re-scheduled 5 business days or less from the scheduled mediation date, no part of the mediation fee will be refunded.
