Resolve Your Dispute Outside Of Court With The Neutrals™

Arbitration and mediation are common alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods that can help parties resolve a dispute without going through a lengthy and wealth draining courtroom litigation. Mediators and arbitrators are neutral and have no interest in the matter before them as they work with all parties to resolve the matter under the applicable laws and rules to each process.

Typically, court ordered mediation and/or arbitration are non-binding, meaning once completed, if either side refuses to accept the outcome of either process then the matter continues to trial. Mediation, which is typically a nonbinding process for the parties involved, utilizes one mediator who does not judge the case. Instead, the mediator facilitates the discussions between the parties, who then develop their own settlement agreement to resolve their dispute.

Arbitration is another process outside the traditional court litigation. In non-binding arbitration, parties take their case before a court appointed arbitrator. Of course, in those cases where a contract requires binding arbitration, the parties may agree to a single arbitrator or a panel of arbitrators depending on the terms of the contract. The arbitrators will make the decision about the case award after hearing from the parties involved in the dispute and receiving other evidence. Like mediation, non-binding arbitration does not extinguish the litigation if either party chooses to file a request for trial de novo, asking the court to move forward with the litigation. Alternatively, the arbitrator’s or arbitrators’ decision in a binding arbitration is final, subject to the terms of the contract for any post arbitration relief.

Mediation and arbitration can be a complex process without the help of an experienced and skilled advocate.
