When a neutral third party tries to bring the disputant to a consensus and agreement, this is called mediation. The mediating party often considers both the conflicting sides and proposes an intermediate and non-binding solution for both parties. It is a method for Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) and there is no legal punishment set for the breach of mediation conditions.
2 – Arbitration
An impartial third-party act as a judge in arbitration and is responsible for resolving the disagreement. The arbitrator listens to each side’s arguments and evidence before making a binding decision. The parties can agree on almost every aspect of the arbitration procedure, including whether or not lawyers will be present at the hearing and what evidentiary standards will be utilized. Arbitrators make decisions that are normally private and cannot be overturned.
3 – Litigation
Civil litigation, the most well-known form of dispute resolution, often pits a defendant against a petitioner in front of a judge or a judge and jury. The judge or jury is in charge of analyzing the evidence and reaching a decision. Hearings and trials frequently result in information being entered into the public record and remaining there until the final decision. Lawyers typically control dispute resolution through litigation, which frequently results in a settlement of the agreement.

What is Arbitration in UK Jurisdiction
Arbitration is a method of resolving a dispute without going to court and serves as the most preferred choice for cross-border disputes. The two opponents present their case to an arbitrator, who is a neutral third party. The arbitrator hears both parties, examines the evidence you’ve submitted, and then decides on the best course of action. In international arbitration, the claimant takes the case to a third country that plays the role of arbitrator. The arbitrator’s decision is referred to as an award, and it is legally binding. You cannot take your case to court to have the decision overturned if you disagree with it.
