Arbitration of Business Disputes
Many business contracts require that disputing parties use arbitration to resolve their disputes. Arbitration is not litigation. Instead of submitting the dispute to a court, disputing parties make their cases to an agreed-upon third party arbitrator that reviews all the evidence and arrives at a decision. The decision of the arbitrator is typically binding, enforceable in a superior court with limited recourse against an unfavorable decision. As a result, actions taken in arbitration proceeding are not to be taken lightly and should be given ample consideration.
Some of the more common matters that involve arbitration include:
- Employment disputes.
- State or federal employment agency investigations.
- Contract disputes.
- Investment agreements.
- Construction-related disputes and contracts.
Because arbitration has different procedures and rules of evidence than court litigation, it is important to work with a legal advocate who knows the arbitration process. Understanding the process can help you create successful arbitration strategies that work for you, your company and in your proceeding.
