Disputes Can Be Resolved With Arbitration And Mediation
Arbitration and mediation provide a number of advantages over traditional litigation. Arbitration and mediation provide the parties with a greater measure of control over the outcome of the case and in the selection of the neutral and fact-finder. These methods of dispute resolution are generally less costly and faster than litigation. The less contentious nature of mediation can also allow parties to preserve relationships. Unlike courtroom proceedings, the results of arbitration or mediation are not a matter of public record. For these and other reasons, alternative dispute resolution is increasingly viewed as an attractive option to parties engaged in business disputes.
