Share this page

Our Commercial & Litigation team has updated the factsheets on mediation and binding third-party decision.

Mediation is an alternative method of dispute resolution. It is based on a confidential and structured process of voluntary dialogue between the parties with the help of a mediator. The mediator is an independent, neutral and impartial third party who facilitates communication and tries to guide the parties to find a solution to their dispute themselves. Our factsheet provides an overview of the most important characteristics of this process.

Binding third-party decision implies that a party (who is neither a judge or an arbitrator) will provide a binding assessment regarding one or more aspects of their (factual or legal) relationship. Find out more about this technique in our factsheet.
