We offer an arbitration and mediation service to resolve business related disputes.
Arbitration and mediation is the use of an independent person where a problem has emerged that employers and employees or businesses and suppliers are unable to solve without assistance. Our arbitrators and mediators are skilled at facilitating discussions between the parties helping them to identify issues and potential solutions.
The aim of our arbitration and mediation service is for the parties to resolve the matter by agreement. Arbitration is like a trial but less formal. Two sides present their evidence to an arbitrator and the arbitrator decides who wins and who loses. An arbitrator does the job that a judge or jury does in court.
Arbitration helps to:
find a fast way to get a decision when you are in a dispute
be more flexible and less formal than court
scheduled faster than a trial
sometimes, if the parties want, decide things that judges are not allowed to decide.
Mediation helps to:
obtain information on problem solving
identify the skills needed to deal with the problem
be the trigger for both parties to recognise a problem exists.
