ADR / Mediation and Arbitration
The fastest-growing segments of the alternative dispute resolution field are in Mediation and Arbitration. Mediation is a voluntary non-binding forum in which to settle cases before a mutually chosen neutral. It can be an effective and cost-efficient method of resolving disputes. Arbitration, which is typically agreed to at the time of contract, is an informal but binding way to resolve disputes outside the courtroom, without the costs of litigation, before a mutually chosen neutral.
Mediation gives the parties a chance to air their grievances before a neutral and then work toward an amicable resolution under the guidance of the neutral. Arbitration gives the parties an opportunity to present their case before a neutral in a streamlined manner which is both cost effective and fair.
