    Dispute Resolution

Mediation

  • A process of assisted negotiation which relies on a neutral third party (mediator) to help parties reach a mutually agreeable resolution
  • Participation by the parties may be voluntary (by private agreement) or mandatory (through a public program such as court-connected mediation
  • Whether attendance is voluntary or mandatory, settlements are consensual - the mediator has no authority to impose a result
  • Once parties reach a settlement with the help of the mediator, they can enter into a binding agreement which is as enforceable as any court order

Arbitration
