Mediation Fee Schedule
1. PROFESSIONAL SERVICE FEES.
The Fee for IMG Mediation is as follows:
2010 Fee Schedule
Rate: $450 per hour ($325 for employment mediations), with a 4 hour minimum. Fees are typically shared equally by all parties or in accordance with any prior agreement or court order. Services include attendance at mediation conferences, review of briefs and other written materials, participation in telephone or follow up conferences and any other services requested by the parties.
Administrative Fee: There is a one-time, non-refundable administrative fee of $250 which is shared by the parties (or an amount equal to $50 per party in the event there are 5 or more parties). Fee waived for employment matters.
Out of Town Travel: Travel outside San Diego County (if any) is billed at a maximum of one hour each way, regardless of the actual amount of travel time, plus reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses (hotels, cab fare, etc.) at actual cost.
2. CONSTRUCTION DEFECT MEDIATION.
Due to the administrative and logistical
complexity, IMG assesses a ten percent
(10%) surcharge in complex, multi-party
construction defect matters.
3. THIRD-PARTY FACILITIES COSTS.
We can provide facilities both locally and
Regionally. Alternate/equidistant facilities are
available at extra cost.
4. FEE AND COST ALLOCATION.
Professional service fees and facilities costs will
be billed to and are due from the contracting
counsels in equal, pro rata shares unless they
agree to a different apportionment and notify
IMG in writing at least fourteen (14) days
before the mediation.
Each participant's share of the total amount due
must be deposited 21 days before the mediation
as a retainer to guarantee the mediation date. If
funds are not on deposit, IMG may offer the
date to other clients.
6. CANCELLATION AND POSTPONEMENT.
If the mediation is canceled or postponed within
21 days of the scheduled date, the party
requesting the cancellation or postponement is
responsible for the entire deposit (not just the
canceling party's share of the deposit), unless the
time slot can be rescheduled.
Mediations in the U.S. are usually held at IMG's primary offices in La
Jolla. Additional offices in Los Angeles, the San Fernando and San Gabriel
Valleys, Orange and Ventura Counties are also available as well as
facilities throughout Northern and Southern California. Based upon the
agreement of the parties, an alternative, mutually determined location
could be agreed to within the U.S.
For International mediations, the parties can mutually determine location
