Dispute Resolution

In the field of dispute resolution there are generally mediation, arbitration and trial litigation.  Mediation is the least formal requiring both parties to work through the process and agree on a final outcome.  In a mediation the mediator works through their differences with the parties in order to resolve disputes and arrive at an equitable solution for both parties.

Arbitration lies somewhere between mediation and litigation in that a neutral third party determines the facts and hands down a binding decision without the formality and expense of formal court litigation.

Court litigation is the highest form of legal dispute resolution and also the most complex and expensive.  Usually each party retains legal counsel and must adhere to a strict set of rules.  Although the court's decision is not necessarily final, it can become prohibitively expensive for the losing party to pursue an appeal to a higher court.
