Neutral Fact Finding

Neutral Fact Finding

Where a dispute involves an issue requiring expertise, and that issue is a stumbling block to settlement, the parties may agree on a neutral third-party to decide that issue. The parties may make the neutral’s decision binding or not. Neutral fact finding can also resolve disputes involving a business entity’s internal affairs, like employment discrimination, where the company needs someone outside the company to investigate the charges.

“The reverse side also has a reverse side.”
Japanese Proverb

 In these circumstances, the parties may agree that the fact finder’s report is for settlement purposes only and therefore not admissible if litigation ensues.
