Mediation involves a meeting with a neutral mediator who tries to assist the parties in resolving their dispute. It is a relatively informal way for the parties to resolve the dispute themselves. Our attorneys can conduct the mediation, act as counsel or recommend a mediator. This approach to dispute resolution usually is relatively inexpensive and less time-consuming than arbitration. The role of the mediator is to facilitate discussion and help the parties themselves arrive at a resolution. While most mediation sessions result in nonbinding decisions, binding mediation is an option.
