Mediation is one of the quickest, most cost-effective manners to resolve disputes. Mediation involves work to reach mutual consent, so that turning to resolve the dispute in court may be avoided, without all the additional expenses and hassle involved.

Many individuals and businesses turn to mediation thanks to its financial value. Additional motives are confidentiality, and the fact that mediation is non-binding. This way, even if you’re not satisfied with the agreement reached you are not obligated to execute it. The court will have no information on the content of the process or on your decision.


This is often the first step. Negotiation involves approaching the other party in the dispute to see if they want to take part in the process with hopes of reaching a resolution. Successful negotiation is very effective to resolve disputes, and very useful when you want to stay in good business relations with the other party.


Arbitration, common in commercial and insurance disputes, is a more formal method governed by the law. 

Its greatest advantage is control on the format of the process, whether or not the arbitrator is subject to material law, procedure, the duty to provide reasons, limited ability to appeal, and more. Sometimes the arbitrator’s identity can be agreed upon in advance.

Therefore, the arbitrator is a consensual judicial element, in lieu of a courthouse judge. However, although the arbitrator is subject to the agreed format of the process, the ability to appeal on his resolutions is very limited. 

We are here to help you inspect whether one or more of the alternative procedures to resolve the dispute is right for you, and to accompany you in every procedure taken to secure the best possible outcome.
