In more complicated disputes, parties often choose a more experienced arbitrator. These arbitrators are compensated on an hourly basis or per diem basis.  The rates charged by arbitrators vary depending on skill, experience, qualifications and the nature of the dispute. Administering agencies, if one is used, also charge separate administrative fees which also vary with the length of the arbitration hearings, and other resources used. Other institutional providers may charge a flat hourly fee and take a percentage of the arbitrator's fee.
