In an arbitration, a neutral person hears arguments and renders a decision. The decision of the arbitrator is final and binding. An arbitration hearing is less formal than a court proceeding and the rules of evidence can be more flexible than in court.
Analysis of facts and law is necessary to assess the case.
What is the difference between mediation and arbitration?
The mediator does not make a decision, but rather works with the parties to assist them in finding their own solution to the dispute between them. The agreement is not legally binding.
An arbitrator, also a third-party neutral, makes a decision based on the evidence presented in the arbitration proceedings, and the decision, unless otherwise agreed, is binding on the parties.
