Terms of Engagement



Carole’s daily rate for mediation is $4,000 plus GST. If the parties believe that the mediation only requires a half day, a reduced fee of $2,000 plus GST will apply. There may be small disbursements such as catering, particularly with full day mediations.

If the parties are willing to mediate at 48 Shortland Street there is no charge for the venue.

Carole is happy to travel to full day mediations outside of Auckland at no extra cost. In that case the parties or their lawyers will need to arrange the venue. If the mediation is more than one day, accommodation costs will be added as a disbursement.

If parties are legally represented, payment is due within 14 days of the mediation taking place. Otherwise fees are payable in advance.


Carole charges per hour for negotiation work. Her hourly rate is $250 plus GST. Negotiations can be conducted at 48 Shortland Street at no extra charge.
