What is Arbitration?
- Arbitration is a process whereby a neutral person (the arbitrator) decides a dispute between the parties in accordance with applicable law.
- The arbitrator may be appointed in different ways. Sometimes a contract provides for the appointment of an arbitrator; other times, the parties may agree to appoint their own arbitrator.
- The rules of the arbitration may be set in advance, agreed by the parties or set by the arbitrator. We can suggest rules, if you wish.
- The arbitrator is a skilled practitioner who will decide the dispute and provide a reasoned decision which will be final and binding on the parties and can be enforced through the courts.
