Mediation costs

Mediation is a cost-effective process that encourages the outcome of a win-win resolution for both parties within a short space of time. Mediation costs are typically low as the process usually only lasts one or two days, and the resources required are limited to that of the parties involved.

Mediation fees are usually split between the parties in dispute, furthering the affordability of the process and the hope for a mutually-beneficial outcome. Additionally, research and discovery costs, court fees, and expert witness expenses are eliminated by avoiding litigation.
