Protecting Your Interests during Mediation & Arbitration

Movies and television will have you believe that every time there is a significant dispute between two entities, all parties are whisked away to a dramatic courtroom showdown. The reality is that litigation is costly for all parties and should only be approached when all other options have been exhausted. Because of this, mediation and arbitration are advantageous ways for businesses and individuals to resolve their dispute without getting bogged down in a trial.

Alternative dispute resolution, however, still requires capable counsel on both sides of the table. At Toppins Law Firm, P.C., our legal team has more than four decades of combined legal experience. We know what it takes to protect the interests of our clients throughout both of these procedures and ensure that favorable, long-term solutions are aggressively pursued on their behalf.

Litigation does not have to be the only answer. Call us today to start exploring your mediation and arbitration options.

Understanding Mediation & Arbitration

If both parties are amenable to alternative means of resolving a dispute, it is crucial that they both pursue the right format. If the parties are still open to discussing their dispute and finding common ground, then mediation is recommended. In mediation, an appointed and impartial mediator structures and guides the discourse between the two parties so that they can arrive at decisions and compromises together.

If two parties believe that their dispute is best decided by an impartial third party, then arbitration may be the best answer. In arbitration, both parties submit their evidence and arguments to an arbitrator, who reviews the case and provides a judgement. Arbitration resembles litigation but is far less formal and expensive for the disputing parties. Just like in mediation, both parties are expected to be represented by counsel.
