You will receive a reply email which lists a number of dates in a given month that I am available to chair a mediation. 

Please note:  Available dates are given to a number of parties who make inquiries and bookings are made on a first-come-first served basis.

Upon receipt of confirmation that both parties agree to my appointment as a mediator and that both parties’ solicitors accept responsibility of payment of fees, a confirmation of booking for the day of mediation and pre-mediation will issue via email.






Confirm Fees 
I provide a scale of fees, dependent upon complexity and size of asset pool. 

A "Mediation Style Conference Standard Scale of Fees" is available from the Mediation Costs page.

Usually, the parties equally share the cost of mediation and place their half of the fees into the trust account of their solicitors.

It is the solicitors who contract with me to chair the mediation and therefore the solicitors who are ultimately responsible for the payment of the mediation fee.



Confirm that both parties agree to appointment
and terms of Mediation 

Upon receipt of confirmation that both parties agree to my appointment as a mediator and that both parties’ solicitors accept responsibility of payment of fees, a confirmation of booking for the day of mediation and pre-mediation will issue via email.

A "Standard Mediation Style Conference Agreement" is available from the Mediation Style Conference Standard Agreement page.



Book a Mediation Day and pre-mediation appointment times 
When the Mediation Style Conference Agreement is signed and returned, a firm booking is made for the conference itself and the pre-mediation conferences with each of the parties.

Although provisional bookings are maintained for as long as possible, until the signed mediation agreement is returned by both parties, the day remains listed as an 'available day' for other parties inquiring about mediations.
