Court of Appeal Fee Policy
Additional fees in appeals involving a heavy mediation workload can also be charged in exceptional cases. Details can be found below:
The fee structure for Court of Appeal cases is as set out on CEDR’s website.
The following cancellation fees apply to all postponed and cancelled mediations:
CANCELLATION FEE CALCULATOR
|Notice (Working days)||Fee Payable (% of payment on account)|
|greater than 10 days||£100 per party|
|3 days or less||100%|
CEDR will issue a refund for the balance if the fee has already been paid prior to notice of cancellation being given.
In appeals with exceptionally high amounts at stake or of exceptional complexity, CEDR is authorised by the Court to indicate that such a mediation is more appropriately dealt with on commercial terms through external providers, the Court of Appeal Mediation Scheme being aimed particularly at those who might otherwise find it difficult to gain access to mediation services. Alternatively, a fee acceptable to both CEDR and the mediator, and which requires approval by the Court, may be negotiated for the case to continue under the Court of Appeal Mediation Scheme if preferred by the parties
