Mediation is a procedure in which a third party helps parties confronting themselves to resolve the conflict between them. The mediator is not intended to decide the dispute (as the arbitrator’s or the court’s role) but to interact between the parties, either in direct negotiations or in separate meetings with each party, in order for the parties themselves to agree on resolving their disputes. The entire mediation process is discreet. Not only is its contents confidential to third parties, but the contents of the mediator’s sitting with one of the parties will not be disclosed to the other party but by consent. Thus, the parties can disclose their personal interests to the mediator and allow the mediator to help find the King’s way which will allow for continued joint work or good relations between the divided parties. The entire mediation procedure is voluntary and at any stage the party can decide that it wants to retire. Unlike the judicial process or arbitration in which the parties do not control the outcome and one party emerges victorious while the other loses, in the mediation process the mediation result is an agreement between the parties that settles the conflict for the benefit of both.

Especially when it comes to international disputes (but also domestic commercial disputes) there is an advantage in resolving disputes in this way. Unlike the legal process, which is long, expensive, involves exposure and certainly does not allow continued work with the other party to the conflict, the mediation process is fast, maintains confidentiality and, as done by a person competent for this activity and specializes in international transactions, often allows the parties to continue a good working relationship and may Even improve relations between the parties.

Even when mediation is not possible (or when one of the parties decides during the mediation that he does not want to pursue it), arbitration management can be an effective, swift and secretive alternative to a lengthy and tedious legal process that is ultimately unclear if the judgment can be backed up – a procedure that takes place in the country Foreign to one of the parties and not necessarily in the language in which it is mastered. Unlike arbitration, in arbitration, the parties entrust their decision to a third party who is given the same powers as a court, but unlike court proceedings, the parties may choose the identity of the arbitrator (as well as other things such as the number of arbitrators, usually one or three, the arbitration location , The substantive law applicable, the language of the arbitration, etc.) and the rules of the game under which the proceedings will be conducted (for example, choosing all or part of the rules of the LCIA or any other international or local arbitration institution). Like the mediation, arbitration can also be carried out in any country the parties choose, not necessarily according to state law or necessarily according to the rules of legal procedure established in that state and thus enable the parties to reach swift and effective justice between them according to the rules of play that they themselves determine and again, resolve the conflict between them. Quickly and discreetly while maintaining a proper working relationship.
