We handle disputes arising out of:
In a typical arbitration, a sole arbitrator or a panel of three arbitrators listen to each party present his or her side of the case. Attorneys are often involved, witnesses may testify, and evidence might be submitted. At the end of the process, the arbitrator or arbitrators deliberate and render a decision that may be binding or non-binding, depending on the needs of the parties. Arbitration offers the potential for a faster, less expensive, more private decision, and it gives the parties more control over their process.
Mediation is a form of dispute resolution where a neutral person helps the parties to a dispute reach a resolution. A mediation can occur in person or over the phone, the parties can be together or in separate rooms, and the mediator can take a more or less active role depending on the issues involved and the needs of the parties. Mediation is often used to settle a lawsuit or resolve a dispute before a lawsuit is filed. A mediator can also assist in less formal situations; for example, by facilitating a difficult conversation with a business partner, the first meeting of a new team at work, or a problem solving session that involves many competing interests.
