This is a confidential and structured process which aims to resolve the dispute between two or more parties through a mediator. This is mostly a voluntary process and in most cases, confidential.

Mediation helps in resolving issues quickly and also reduces the cost. This also has a positive psychological impact as not many procedures are involved.


What is Arbitration?

Arbitration is a legal technique for the resolution of disputes outside of courts wherein the parties to a dispute refer it to one or more persons, called the arbitrators, by whose decision, the parties agree to be legally bound.
