If you are considering mediating you may wish to consider Patrick Walker’s CV with your legal advisers. If you have any queries do feel free to email or call Patrick. A busy workload means that he may not be able to answer your call immediately but please leave a message and he will get back to you as soon as he can.
Usually, when you are ready to mediate, your legal advisers will ask for a mediation agreement and agree a venue and date with the mediator.
The fee for the mediator is agreed and almost always divided equally between the parties.
Patrick Walker will usually offer a fixed fee mediation and rates are available on request.
Standard conditions include the following:
The parties’ legal advisers will usually agree the contents of a document bundle for the mediator’s use. It is also usual for each party to provide a ‘position statement’ – a short summary of their up-to-date position. This is usually also provided to the other party but can be for the mediator’s eyes only.
The mediator will make himself available by email and/or telephone so that preliminary matters and practical considerations such as timing, parking, refreshments and listing those who will attend, can be discussed.
