Med/Arb

Some cases benefit from having the same neutral be the mediator and, if the case does not settle, the arbitrator.

The med/arb process can give parties the benefits of mediation with a process that will produce a binding decision if the parties cannot agree.

The mediator first tries to help the parties find a solution that works for both of them. If there is no agreement, the mediator becomes an arbitrator and makes a binding decision.

The arbitration in a Med/Arb is often less expensive and faster than a regular arbitration, because the arbitrator is already familiar with the case, having acted as mediator.
