Arbitration Law

Arbitration Law

Arbitration is a method of dispute resolution in which a neutral third party, an arbitrator, conducts hearing and / or reviews written submissions from the parties. Upon consideration of the evidence, the arbitrator makes a legally binding decision which can be enforced in the same manner as a civil court judgment.

Arbitration differs from mediation in that once you enter the arbitration process, you are bound by the arbitrator’s decision. Mediation is a negotiation process, in which the mediator helps the parties negotiate a mutually acceptable solution.
