Arbitration. In today’s world, arbitration is a regular process, and in many instances, it is contractually substituted for public court proceedings. Arbitration is a privately paid and legally approved method of resolving disputes in a binding manner without any details being revealed in the public record. It is regularly included in contracts between businesses and more so in contracts between businesses and consumers, and provides businesses the opportunity to tailor procedural rules before any dispute ever occurs (including the number of arbitrators, required time periods, amount of discovery to be conducted, amounts in controversy, etc.).
Mediation. Mediation is a private dispute resolution tool, and in many disputes, mediation is a part of the process of a lawsuit prior to trial. Mediation allows a mediator, as a trained, neutral third party, to hear both sides of the dispute, and then help each side move forward to a resolution. Mediation usually occurs in either an office setting or a virtual setting, where the parties and their counsel are separated from one another in different rooms, while the mediator attempts to aid the parties to negotiate a comprised resolution of the lawsuit.
