Arbitration and Mediation

 

Types of Arbitration and Mediation

Arbitration and mediation are two distinct but related forums falling under the umbrella “Alternative Dispute Resolution.” Mediation is a negotiations process in which a mediator acts to facilitate settlement discussion between parties embroiled in a dispute. Through mediation, the parties learn the strengths and weaknesses of their case and settlement options that may be accepted or rejected by the parties.

We help our clients through this process by presenting the facts or assisting the client in presenting their case to the other party and mediator in the light most favorable to them and by helping digest the information learned from the other party or the mediator regarding the opponent’s perception of events, liability and potential damages.

Arbitration is an informal trial-like setting in which the parties agree to enter testimony and documentary evidence before an arbitrator, who then makes a binding determination of the merits of a case and the damages, if any, to be awarded, much like a trial judge would. Our firm is highly experienced in representing clients in this forum.
