What Is Arbitration?

Arbitration is a private forum for resolving legal disputes. It functions much like a court, but with an arbitrator instead of a judge. The arbitrator is an independent third party who is trained to adjudicate disputes. They conduct mini-trials and issue a decision that is meant to reflect what a judge would likely decide in litigation.

Arbitration can be either binding – meaning the parties cannot appeal the decision or further litigate it in court – or nonbinding, meaning the parties can still take further legal action.

What Is Mediation?

In mediation, a neutral third party facilitates negotiations between the parties. The goal is to reach a settlement agreement. However, the parties aren’t required to reach an agreement, and both parties retain the right to pursue litigation.

In some cases, the mediator can serve a dual role as both the facilitator and arbitrator of a dispute.

The Benefits Of Mediation And Arbitration

Both mediation and arbitration offer significant advantages over litigation. Addressing legal disputes in court is expensive and time-consuming. Litigation is a major drain on resources. Arbitration and mediation are faster, more cost-effective ways to achieve a favorable resolution.

Mediation is confidential, meaning the mediator can’t divulge information without the party’s consent. This protection is crucial for fostering productive settlement discussions without jeopardizing the parties’ ability to pursue litigation if they don’t obtain a comprehensive settlement agreement.
