Kansas City Construction Mediation And Arbitration Lawyers
When a legal dispute arises in the construction industry, it often cannot go straight to court. Many construction contracts contain mandatory mediation and arbitration clauses that require disputes to proceed through these alternative dispute resolution processes.
What Are Mediation And Arbitration?
Mediation is a negotiation process designed to foster a settlement. It involves a neutral, third-party facilitator who acts as the go-between for the parties. Even if the construction contract does not contain a mediation clause, many courts require mediation as a precursor to trial.
Arbitration, by contrast, is essentially a private trial that takes place before a professional arbitrator. The result is binding on all parties, which means it is a final decision that can only be challenged on limited grounds.
