Contract Dispute, Construction, Employment and General Commercial Law Arbitration
Alternative dispute resolution methods such as arbitration and mediation give disputing parties a more cost-effective and time-saving approach to resolving their conflicts. Arbitrations are different from trials in that instead of a judge or jury, a third-party neutral or arbitrator presides over a conflict. Arbitrations usually are binding and the arbitrator acts like a judge, ruling on evidence and issuing a decision on the outcome of the conflict.

Why Arbitration?There are many advantages to arbitration. Arbitration usually saves time and money for all parties involved. Since parties sometimes help structure a solution, they work together rather than bringing hostility to a dispute. Also, arbitrations are private and scheduling is more flexible than trials. However, it is important to understand that arbitration is almost always binding and the decision stands. If you are considering arbitration, be sure to talk to one of our attorneys to discuss how arbitration would work for your legal conflict and the permanency of the decision.
Another ADR Method: Mediation. Another widely-used alternative dispute resolution method is mediation. Like arbitration, a neutral third party helps parties work toward a resolution. However, the mediator helps facilitate the process rather than to hand down a final decision. Mediation is generally not binding and parties do have the option of continuing to trial.
