What We Do

In mediation, a member of McCarthy Fingar's Mediation & Arbitration Group first guides each participant to better understand and clarify their own concerns and those of the other. If mediation fails to bring a solution, arbitration is sometimes chosen as the best and alternative to litigation in the court system. In arbitration, the parties agree to permit a third-party to make a binding decision to resolve the controversy. These two process are combined in Med/Arb, where the parties first work towards a mutually acceptable outcome, but then the neutral issues a final binding decision when they are unable to agree.
