A mediator helps to resolve the case. An arbitrator has the final word.
Mediation and Arbitration are more than just mandatory (or, in some cases, alternate) dispute resolution procedures. Mediation and Arbitration can lead to binding outcomes that the parties worked to craft. And because the parties have a say in the settlement (in the case of mediation) or in the procedure (in the case of arbitration), Mediation and Arbitration provide opportunities for a tailor-made resolution.
Mediators and Arbitrators need experience, knowledge and insight. Ben Rutherford’s background as a pre-eminent litigator means that he knows what is important to parties to a dispute.
