What is a legal dispute

Types of Legal Disputes

There are three main ways to settle a legal disagreement. A claim may start with an alternative dispute resolution (mediation or arbitration) prior to litigation in court.

Mediation is when a neutral third party steps in to help reach a resolution. The impartial mediator conducts proceedings where information is exchanged in a balanced process. The mediator also assists in negotiating the differences between the parties, with the goal of reaching a compromise that is acceptable to both.

Arbitration is usually a binding procedure. This means the parties involved are legally obligated to accept the decision of the arbitrator, who is usually a retired attorney or judge. The neutral arbitrator listens to arguments and evidence on both sides, then renders a decision.

Litigation is when a dispute goes to court. If you believe a crime has been committed against you or a group you represent, proceeding with a criminal or civil action against the other party may be the next step to take.

Determining which process is right for settling your legal dispute can seem like an overwhelming task, with major consequences. The attorneys at KRW will present your options, advise you of the pros and cons of each, and answer any questions you may have. Whether it’s a lawsuit, arbitration or mediation, KRW is committed to resolving the legal dispute in your best interests.
