Mediation is an efficient and cost effective form of dispute resolution in which an impartial third party mediator assists the parties in resolving their disputes and/or litigation. Mediated dispute resolution can help the parties achieve resolution while avoiding the expense and uncertain result of a civil trial or arbitration.
Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution which allows parties to resolve their disputes with an impartial third party arbitrator who decides the issues in dispute.
Both parties participate in a hearing at which they can present evidence and testimony. Both sides agree in advance to be bound by the decision of the arbitrator.
Arbitration can be much faster and less expensive than a civil trial and the parties can choose an arbitrator to decide their dispute who knows the area of the law well.
Murray Mediation Services will set up the pre-arbitration conference, issue any preliminary rulings, facilitate the exchange of documents and, if necessary, book and coordinate the venue.
All decisions will be rendered in a timely manner.
