Efficient Conflict Resolution

This hybrid approach to conflict resolution, often referred to as “med-arb”, combines the benefits of mediation and arbitration. Parties first attempt to resolve the dispute with the mediator.  Should issues remain after the mediation, the parties continue with the same neutral in an arbitration hearing to resolve the remaining issues with binding decision.  In the alternative, the mediator may confer with another neutral whom the parties have chosen as an arbitrator.  This technique can resolve disputes relatively quickly and efficiently, particularly if parties believe some issues can be agreed upon and the neutral is experienced with this hybrid approach.
