Arbitration Services

Arbitration is an alternative form of dispute resolution in which a neutral third party, called an arbitrator, will decide on the outcome of the dispute based on the law and facts as presented by the parties. Arbitration is much more flexible than a trial and allows the parties to work with the arbitrator to design a process that will be more efficient and focus on the issues that matter to the parties.

Clients frequently choose arbitration as an alternative to the court process, where the speed of resolution and the privacy of the parties are paramount.

For it to function as intended, the parties and the arbitrator need to be pragmatic in designing a process that will serve the ultimate goal.
