Arbitration and Mediation


Arbitration refers to one of several methods, collectively referred to as “alternative dispute resolution” (ADR), for resolving legal disputes other than through a formal court system. Arbitration is very similar to a trial in court, except that the claims and defenses are presented to a privately-retained neutral party (”arbitrator” or “arbiter”) rather than a judge or jury. After listening to summary arguments and considering all the evidence presented in a dispute, an arbitrator renders a decision tantamount to a court decision or judgment.
