Arbitration fixed costs

I have recently been asked on a number of occasions about my rates for Arbitration which i had never published before. I would ask you to note that I charge £1900 plus VAT for a one day Arbitration with one lever Arch file of papers, the fee includes writing the award. If additional days are needed, or a full day is not required i am happy to send you a bespoke fixed fee quote.

It is important that the arbitrator stays neutral so i would ask that you copy all parties into any email you send me asking for information on fees or process: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

I am only qualified to undertake financial remedy arbitration and do not accept instructions to adjudicate cohabitation issues or any dispuites under the Inheritance Act 1975.

A new day - a new procedure

How to proceed with Arbitration?

As Arbitration was only introduced in March 2012, many people (Judges, barristers, Solicitors, Cilex members and clients!) are still getting to grips with this new process.

In order to assist everyone, three fellow Arbitrators at FamilyArbitrator have drafted a checklist to use in anticipation of the first appointment with the Arbitrator.

It would be enormously helpful if readers of this article could take the time to have a look at the checklist and give us some feedback. Any feedback given on this website is confidential and I don't need to publish your comments (if you don't want me to!). If you would like to be involved at the beginning of this new and positive dispute resolution process, get involved with the debate here or on the associated Linkedin group.

Thank you for your time and many thanks to FamilyArbitrator for letting me use their checklist on my site.

The Checklist

A new way toward resolving family disputes

I have qualified as a Family Law Arbitrator, this means that I am able to help people to resolve their family related disputes outside court, at times that are convenient to them and wherever they wish to.

The Family Law Arbitration scheme was introduced in England and Wales in March 2012, there are a few qualified Arbitrators who are able to conduct this type of work.
