Typically, arbitration is voluntary or mandatory, binding or nonbinding. Binding arbitration offers the parties the least control over the decision-making process and outcome. During arbitration, each party has the opportunity to present their case and argue the facts and legalities in a structured environment to a third-party neutral. Like mediation, arbitration is more expedition than litigation and is cost-effective.
The Attorneys at Loberg Law Office are experienced in the field of Alternative Dispute Resolution and are members of the Wisconsin Association of Mediators. The attorneys at Loberg Law Office understand the importance of arbitration, mediation, and pre-trial negotiations.
Civil Mediation is a process whereby a third-party neutral mediator works with parties to help them resolve issues or disputes in a constructive manner. There are several benefits to mediation. First, mediation frequently provides parties with a result that is both satisfying and cost-effective. Generally, litigation is expensive and results are not guaranteed. Approximately 67% of cases ordered into mediation reach settlement and require no further court involvement.
The second benefit of mediation is that the parties agree to the ground rules and “buy into” the process. Mediation allows parties and their attorneys to exercise the most control over both procedure and outcome. Mediation allows flexibility and is more focused on finding a solution than on determining fault. Thus, mediation results in the empowerment of parties and fosters a belief that the end result is fair.
Mediation and arbitration is also an option even if parties are already involved in the litigation process. Mediation, arbitration, and other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution are mandatory in some situations. Loberg Law Office provides mediation and arbitration services in the following areas:
