FAA to EASA conversion

Hello all!
Does anybody have experience with converting FAA to EASA, cost, process, time? How quickly can I convert FAA MEL fATPL into EASA cert, and do you have any recommendations for schools?
Or obtaining EASA in the US (some hrs required in the EU, but much shorter time in school)? Thanks a ton!

I'm going thorough this process now.

First of all, for low-timers (under 1500h) 14 ATPL subjects. Hard, but doable and not very expensive compared to the rest: from about 1000 to 3000 eur (depends on a school).

I assume that with that FAA license you already have above 200h TT and a 300nm+ solo XC.

NVFR: 5 hours training in a single-engine (SE) airplane, from 2 days.
IR/SE conversion - if you have 50h PIC IFR (not FAA PIC though - it should be without a CFI in the airplane), no min hours requirement. Just some training in the EU airspace to prepare for a skill test. From 1 week.
CPL: 15 hours training in a flight school (ATO) and a skill test. From 1 week.
ME: 6 hours training and a skill test. From 2 days.
ME/IR: 5 hours training and a skill test. From 2 days.

Total price highly depends on flight hours. ME hour price is very high in Europe, and even those 11 hours mean a lot of money (hour price is from about 400 eur). SE hour price is from about 150 eur. In overall it will be about 10-15k euro.

That's it for piston airplane ratings. After all of this it will be unrestricted EASA license with SEP/IR and MEP/IR, most probably with PBN.
