Comparison of procedures
Cost of resolving cross-border disputes through legal or arbitration proceedings is many times higher compared to mediation. Based on a study presented to the European Commission, the average cost in the Member States for resolving a dispute through court proceedings is 4 times higher than it is in mediation (2,500 € versus 10,500 €) and becomes even higher in cross-border disputes if multiple travel expenses, accommodation and loss of working hours are added.
Dispute Resolution fees
Cost of mediation in ADR point starts at 200€! Mediation may include, in addition to the fees of the mediator, hospitality expenses (if applicable) and secretarial expenses (if required). In online dispute resolution procedures there are no hospitality and secretarial charges but only payment of the mediator’s fees.
