CLNAA® has a simple administrative fee option for all all arbitrations. The administrative fees of CLNAA are based on the amount of the claim or counterclaim. Arbitrator compensation is not included in this schedule. Unless the parties agree otherwise, arbitrator compensation and administrative fees are subject to allocation by the arbitrator in the award.
Fees for incomplete or deficient filings: Where the applicable arbitration agreement does not reference CLNAA®, we will attempt to obtain the agreement of the other parties to the dispute to have the arbitration administered by CLNAA®. However, where we are unable to obtain the agreement of the parties to have the CLNAA® administer the arbitration, CLNAA® will administratively close the case and will not proceed with the administration of the arbitration. In that case, we will return the filing fees to the filing party, less the amount specified in the fee schedule below for deficient filings. Parties that file Notices of Arbitration that are incomplete or otherwise do not meet the filing requirements contained in our rules shall also be charged the amount specified below for deficient filings if they fail or are unable to respond to our request to correct the deficiency.
Fees for additional services: We reserve the right to assess additional administrative fees for services performed by us beyond those provided for herein which may be required by the parties’ agreement or stipulation.
An Initial Filing Fee is payable in full by a filing party when a claim, counterclaim, or additional claim is filed. A Final Fee will be incurred for all cases that proceed to their arbitration conference. This fee will be payable in advance at the time that the first arbitration conference with the initiating party is scheduled.
These fees will be billed in accordance with the following schedule:
|Amount of Claim||Initial Filing Fee||Final Fee|
|Up to $75,000||$750||$800|
|Above $75,000 to $150,000||$1,750||$1,250|
|Above $150,000 to $300,000||$2,650||$2,000|
|Above $300,000 to $500,000||$4,000||$3,500|
|Above $500,000 to $1,000,000||$5,000||$6,200|
|Above $1,000,000 to $10,000,000||$7,000||$7,700|
|Deficient Claim Filing Fee||$500|
Fees are subject to increase if the amount of a claim or counterclaim is modified after the initial filing date.
There are no additional administrative fees beyond the Fees outlined above to initiate a case under the Expedited Procedures. The compensation of the arbitrator will be determined by the Administrator, in consultation with the arbitrator, and in consideration of the specific nature of the case and the amount in dispute.
