In today’s world, arbitration is a common process for resolving disputes. In many cases, arbitration 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. Arbitration is regularly included in contracts between businesses and more so in contracts between businesses and consumers. Arbitration provides businesses the opportunity to tailor procedural rules before any dispute ever occurs. Such rules may stipulate the number of arbitrators, required time periods, amount of discovery to be conducted, amounts in controversy, and more.
Mediation is a private dispute resolution tool. In many cases, mediation is part of the process of a lawsuit prior to trial. Mediation allows a mediator — who is a trained, neutral third party — to hear both sides of the dispute. The mediator then helps 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 compromised resolution of the lawsuit.
