Full blown court litigation is expensive, long, uncertain and public. Mediation is sometimes more attractive to the parties as an alternative dispute resolution method, in which a mediator attempts to bring the parties to a mutually acceptable solution. In confidential non-binding proceedings a middle ground may be sought which saves time and money. Arbitration between the parties may also be a good approach to resolving a legal dispute without undue publicity, whereby the parties agree to be bound by the to the findings of a neutral arbitrator, the procedural steps being agreed between the parties.
