Mediation is an informal dispute resolution process brought before an
independent, neutral third-party mediator. Parties may choose their own
Mediation gives the parties the opportunity to discuss their issues, clear up misunderstandings, and find areas of agreement or narrow issues rather than proceeding with a lawsuit. Mediation is voluntary, and typically the mediator has no authority to make a binding decision unless both parties agree.
The State Courts conduct mediation sessions (also called “Court Dispute Resolution”) as part of their case management process for a small fee for civil matters that fall within the jurisdiction of the State Courts. For matters involving sums above $250,000.00 or outside the jurisdiction of the State Courts, parties who agree on mediation may use the services of the Singapore Mediation Centre for mediation, with fees payable by both sides at standard rates commensurate with the size of the claim.

Arbitration is the method for the determination of disputes between two parties
by an impartial third party whose decision the contending parties agree to
comply with. The impartial third party is called “the arbitrator” and the
decision made “an award”. Parties can agree to use arbitration either by
including an arbitration clause in their agreement at the drafting stage, or by
signing an arbitration agreement after the dispute has arisen.
Unlike Court hearings, arbitration hearings are confidential and there is greater flexibility with regard to the dates, time and location. Parties can also choose their own arbitrator which is useful for cases involving highly technical matters.
Increasingly, parties who agree on arbitration choose to use the Singapore International Arbitration Centre, which has a panel of arbitrators with expertise in various fields, and prescribed rules and procedures for arbitration proceedings.
