POLICIES

  RESPONSIBILITY OF ATTORNEYS. Notwithstanding the fact that counsel is acting as agent for a disclosed principal, the attorney’s client, the mediator is setting aside time to mediate this dispute in reliance on each party’s attorney’s, if any, agreement also to be responsible for timely payment of that party’s fees and costs related to the mediation.


PAYMENT TERMS. A non-refundable deposit equivalent to the cancellation fee, plus any applicable room reservation fee, will be billed and payable three business days prior to the mediation. The remainder of the fees and costs will be billed following the mediation and will be due within 15 calendar days of the mediation. 


CANCELLATION OR POSTPONEMENT POLICY. Notice of cancellation or postponement of a scheduled mediation conference must be received at least 3 business days prior to the scheduled commencement of the mediation conference. Absent such timely notification, the parties will be billed their pro rata shares of the cancellation/postponement fees as stated below, as well as each party’s pro rata share of costs and travel expenses already incurred, e.g., airline change fees or penalties as a result of any pre-payments and/or deposits for the engagement.
