 Before entering into arbitration or litigation, consider mediation - a natural first step in the dispute resolution process. Mediation is an informal process in which a trained and impartial mediator facilitates negotiations between disputing parties, helping them to find their own mutually acceptable resolution. What distinguishes mediation from other forms of dispute resolution - principally, arbitration and litigation - is that the mediator does not impose the solution, but rather, helps make it possible for you and the other party to form and accept a solution yourselves

When it seems that other efforts to resolve your dispute are not working, it is then time to decide whether you will file a claim to arbitrate. Even if you choose, or are required to use, arbitration rather than litigation in a court of law as a means of resolving your dispute, you should consider hiring a Mediator/Arbitrator from Emahlahleni Dispute Resolution Centre who will provide valuable instruction and advice. Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), it is a legal technique for the resolution of disputes outside the courts, wherein the parties to a dispute refer it to one or more persons, the "arbitrator/s by whose decision (the "award") they agree to be bound. It is a settlement technique in which a third party reviews the case and imposes a decision that is legally binding for both sides.
