The Centre for specialist Dispute Resolution processes
The Mediation & Arbitration Centre provides efficient, flexible and impartial administration of mediation, arbitration and of a wide range of other ADR processes, for Australian parties. The Centre can access legally qualified and accredited mediators, arbitrators and experts with the widest range of expertise. We provide a complete package of dispute resolution services, including identifying, recommending, and appointing the ADR neutral; organising the date, venue and attendance of the parties by telephone, video conference or in-person and administering the dispute resolution process and paperwork electronically and securely. We are truly independent and able to identify and recommend the person most suitably qualified to be the ADR neutral, irrespective of their membership of any particular affiliated group. As we are not a membership based organisation our dispute resolution services are available to all contracting parties, without any membership requirements. We are experienced specialists in the practise of Alternative Dispute Resolution and able to provide informed advice on the best method, people and processes to use.
Arbitration is a process where parties agree to have their dispute determined in a legally binding manner by a person they jointly choose and appoint. Importantly they also agree to be bound by the decision of the arbitrator who is required to act fairly and judicially in determining the dispute.
Mediation is a non-binding, collaborative process where parties who are in dispute are assisted by a Mediator, who is a third party neutral independent of the parties, to come to an agreed resolution on the issues in dispute.
Expert Determination is a process often used for the resolution of disputes involving discrete technical or valuation questions, by an appointed independent third party with recognised expertise in the subject matter of the dispute.
A combined Mediation and Arbitration process combines the advantages of each of the two separate methods of dispute resolution into one hybrid process. The flexibility of mediation coupled with the finality of binding arbitration.
