In Mediation, the mediator helps the involved parties reach a settlement by assisting with communications, obtaining relevant information, and develop options that benefit both parties fairly. In Arbitration, the arbitrator hears the evidence brought forth by the parties involved and will issue a legally-binding resolution based on similar trial results.

What is Mediation?
By definition, Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution in which the parties to a lawsuit meet with a neutral third-party (mediator) in an effort to settle the case.
Mediators are not responsible for issuing orders, finding fault, or making determinations. The job of a mediator is to help the involved parties to reach an agreement by assisting with communications, obtaining relevant information, and providing settlement options that are agreeable by both parties.
Typically the mediator will meet with both parties in a collaborative effort to gather informal explanations of their views of the dispute. Following the meeting of both parties at once, the mediator will then meet with each party individually, exploring possible ways to resolve the issue at hand.
Most disputes are successfully resolved and both parties enter into a written settlement agreement, and this process has been generally more favorable than arbitration.
What is Arbitration?
By definition, Arbitration is a legal technique used for resolving disputes outside of court wherein the parties to a dispute refer it to one or more persons (arbitrators) whose decision they agree to is to be bound.
Arbitration is more formal than Mediation. The arbitrator could be a retired judge, senior lawyer, an accountant or some other form of specific professional. Both parties are provided an opportunity to present their case to the arbitrator. Respective lawyers are able to question witnesses from both sides.
There are little to no out-of-court negotiations between parties. The arbitrator has the power to make any decision legally binding which both parties must honor. The agreement is then enforced in court.
