Mediation: Who pays for mediation?

Riddle Brantley LLP   |  January 19, 2015   |  

Under the rules of mediation, both sides share the costs of the mediator’s fees. However, in many injury cases which settle at mediation, the defendants will usually offer to pay the full cost of the mediator’s fees as part of the settlement. If the case is not settled, then you may be responsible, as an advanced cost, for one half of the mediator’s fees.
