    Fees

    At the opening of the case, the party or parties requesting the mediation procedure pay a fixed sum of € 50.00, which will cover, among other things, the costs and the first steps required to start the mediation. When drawing up the mediation protocol, the mediator will take this fixed sum into account and, if applicable, deduct it from the final bill.

    Unless agreed otherwise, the costs and fees are shared equally among the parties.

    A specific hourly fee (VAT incl.) is applied for BELMED cases:

    • disputes up to € 1,860.00 : € 80.00/hour;
    • disputes up to € 2,500.00: € 100.00/hour;
    • disputes up to € 5,000.00: € 125.00/hour;
    • disputes above € 5,000.00: € 150.00/hour.

    If the dispute involves three parties or more, additional fees of € 50.00 per party are billed.

    The calculation of the fees includes the time spent for all the steps or tasks carried out before, during or after the mediation meeting (letters, reports, interviews, phone calls, etc.)

    Travel expenses are taken into account separately: € 0.484/km (VAT incl.)

    No other costs than those mentioned above may be charged.

    How does it work

    Alexandra Boël is a mediator certified by the Federal Mediation Commission in civil and commercial matters.

    Mediation is a voluntary and confidential procedure. The mediator facilitates dialogue and reflection in an environment favourable to mutual listening, respect, trust and creativity. Without imposing a solution, she helps the parties to find an agreement that complies with the law and respects everyone’s interests and that can be ratified by a court of justice if the parties request it.
