Payment: Under the MSC Rules, payment is due at the conclusion of the mediation. However, as a professional courtesy, it is my practice to invoice the attorneys after the conference, if they prefer. Attorneys who engage me to mediate and who choose to be invoiced following the mediation, agree to make payment on behalf of their clients upon receipt of the invoice. Unless the parties agree to the contrary, each is liable for its share of the fees as provided in the MSC Rules.
