What is arbitration?
Arbitration is a method used for resolving disputes and is often included
in a construction contract. Many courts will also order that cases be
subjected to arbitration before they can come to court as a dispute. While
similar to a trial, arbitration is less formal and can often be less time
consuming and expensive. One or more neutral arbitrators are selected
to hear the dispute. Arbitrators can act like a judge, as they hear the
case and make a final decision.
Utilizing Mediation Methods
Mediation is another means of resolution and can sometimes be court-ordered
before a case is brought to trial. As opposed to arbitration, mediation
is nothing like a trial but is merely an effort to have both parties reach
a mutually acceptable settlement. A mediator is a neutral third party.
While they cannot render a decision in the conflict, they offer guidance
for out of court dispute resolution.
