What is the difference between arbitration and mediation?

Mediation is different from both arbitration and litigation. Arbitration and litigation are adversarial processes where an independent third party (an arbitrator or a judge) decides who is right, who pays, and how much. Mediation is a settlement process where parties do not win or lose. Instead, they work together to find a solution they can both live with.
