Overview of Arbitration Services

Introduction:
divider
Arbitration is an adversarial process in which parties present opposing claims to a neutral Arbitrator. Following a hearing, the Arbitrator issues an Award which decides who prevails on the claims.

Arbitration has proven a fair and efficient alternative to courtroom litigation for disputes that the parties have been unable to resolve through negotiation or mediation. During arbitration proceedings, parties can argue their case to the arbitrator, present evidence and examine witnesses

Arbitration always takes place by agreement of the participants. A written agreement to arbitrate is enforceable and confers jurisdiction on the courts to enter and enforce judgment on resulting arbitration awards. Such an agreement may be made before or after a dispute arises.
