Arbitration and mediation are time-tested, cost-effective alternatives to litigation. Arbitration is the submission of a dispute to one or more impartial persons for a final and binding decision, known as an “award.” Awards are made in writing and are generally final and binding on the parties in the case. Mediation, on the other hand, is a process in which an impartial third party facilitates communication and negotiation and promotes voluntary decision making by the parties to the dispute. This process can be effective for resolving disputes prior to arbitration or litigation.
