Arbitration and Mediation


Arbitration is a method of legal dispute resolution involving the use of an arbitrator to hear the points of an issue from both parties and determine a binding decision.  The arbitrator is a neutral party similar to a judge who is trained and experienced in resolving disputes of a specific type.

Arbitration is normally used when an agreement has previously been entered into by the parties involved to accept binding arbitration in the event of a dispute.  Arbitration may also be used in labor disputes relating to grievances and collective bargaining agreement disagreements.  Arbitration can save both parties much of the expense of trial litigation, move faster than a congested court docket and allow the arbitrator much flexibility in resolving the issues.


Mediation provides a method where two parties can enlist the services of an impartial mediator to help them reach an amicable agreement on a matter.  The mediator is usually a professional in the field concerning the subject matter and offers both parties an impartially researched opinion and advice concerning their common interest and the structure and content of the agreement.

Mediation is commonly used in disputes between countries, states, corporations or other entities where strict application of legal precedent is lacking or not applicable.  This can include issues concerning commerce, borders, treaties and war.  Mediation is also useful in domestic matters such as marriage agreements or prenuptial agreements.
