Expert type

What they can do


A mediator can assist parties in working towards a negotiated agreement, giving the parties ultimate control of the decision to settle and the terms of resolution.


An adjudicator can decide a fast working solution to an issue pending the outcome of, or without the need for, a more formal dispute resolution procedure. The decision is binding unless or until the dispute is finally determined by other means.


Arbitrators are appointed to decide the outcome of a dispute between two or more parties. The decision is final and binding.

A technical expert who will make a binding decision on technical rather than legal issues and who has the power to ask question of the parties before rendering his or her decision.

Independent neutral for negotiation or independent chairing
