Our Denver arbitration and mediation attorney has extensive experience structuring agreed upon resolutions of disputes, enabling businesses to avoid the risks of courtroom litigation.
Mediation vs. Arbitration in Denver
Although arbitration and mediation are both used to resolve disputes, they differ in several key ways. First, mediation is usually much less formal and time-consuming than arbitration. It is also often significantly less expensive. Mediation is also non-binding; that is, it is not enforceable unless all parties agree to all terms and get a court to approve their agreement.
Arbitration is typically more formal than mediation and involves a hearing process in which a dispute is brought before someone for a decision.
An arbitration hearing may include:
- Presentation of evidence and testimony
- Formal briefing
The arbitrator may also prepare a written opinion of facts and findings as part of his or her decision. More importantly, unlike mediation, arbitration is binding on all parties whether they like the outcome or not.
