Mediation allows disputing parties the most control in resolving their conflicts. Parties determine when and where to meet. They craft their own agreement in a process guided by an independent, non-biased third party known as a mediator. The mediator shepherds the disputing parties who control the outcome. If they can reach a final agreement to settle, they can make their agreement binding.


Arbitration is a more formal out-of-court process where the parties each present their side of the dispute to an impartial third party who will render a binding decision based on the facts and the law. They can present witnesses and evidence to support a resolution in favor of their case. Many business contracts build in an arbitration clause for settling disputes.
