Mediation | Med-Arb | Arbitration

ADR & ODR Training




Mediation, med-arb and arbitration are used in many types of different disputes and all involve the use of a third party neutral.




Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution process designed to help you work out solutions in a collabrative way and minimize the possibility of going to court. 

Med-Arb combines the best aspects of mediation and arbitration in an innovative stand-alone process providing a definitive outcome for the parties and is worth considering in almost any type of dispute.

Arbitration is a binding private customized dispute resolution process that results in an enforceable decision (Award) by your choice of decision maker (the Arbitrator) in a more informal and flexible way than going to court.
