Mediation is a confidential process that requires the voluntary agreement of all the parties to the terms of the resolution.

Arbitration resembles court proceedings more closely than mediation in that the parties allow an arbitrator to decide the outcome.

Arbitrations can also sometimes be less expensive than a trial. Mr. Spiegel is extremely knowledgeable about both the procedure and the substance of arbitrations. His expertise in when to use it, how to use it, how to select arbitrators, and his own ability to arbitrate a case provides clients is a valuable resolution tool.
