What is Arbitration?

Much like mediation, arbitration is a method of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that takes place out-of-court. In arbitration, both sides present their case to the neutral arbitrator (or panel of arbitrators). The arbitrators listen, like a judge, and then render a decision in the case.

How does Arbitration Differ from Mediation?

In Mediation, the parties work a neutral mediator to arrive at a mutually agreed upon solution. In arbitration, the parties present their arguments to the arbitrator or panel of arbitrators. The arguments for both sides are usually made by attorneys, but the rules of evidence differ from those found in a courtroom. The decision by the arbitrators is legally binding and final, and except in cases of actual fraud, without possibility of an appeal.

Cost-Effective, Efficient and Final

Once the decision is entered in the arbitration, the matter is settled. The limited availability of an appeal ensures finality in the decision will not require months or years. Another advantage of arbitration is avoiding crowded court dockets; this means your case can be heard much sooner than traditional litigation. Because the decision for you case occurs more quickly and cannot be appealed, the overall cost of the transaction is likely to be much lower than court-based litigation.
