Arbitration Fee Schedule
Binding and Non-binding Arbitration
Arbitration services are billed at $500 per hour. This includes the Pre-Arbitration Conference, evidence review, discovery or other hearings, Arbitration Hearing and preparation of the Arbitration Award. There is no administrative fee or charge.
Hybrid or Arb/Med (Arbitration followed by Mediation)
Due to the necessity of confidential disclosures in mediation, mediation will be conducted only after arbitration is concluded and a written opinion prepared. Time for mediation following arbitration will be charged at the same hourly rate as the arbitration with a four-hour minimum charge for the mediation.
Payment & Cancellation Policy
An estimated fee will be determined following the Pre-Hearing Conference. A deposit amount and due date will be set at that time and be included in the Pre-Hearing Order.
Cancellation within two weeks of a Final Hearing or post-arbitration mediation will result in a cancellation charge of two hours. If the hearing is rescheduled and held within 30 days, the cancellation fee will be credited to the party paying for cancellation.
