Understand What Arbitration Can Do For You

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) comes in many forms, with arbitration being a popular option. Arbitration offers unique and legally binding options for businesses and individuals during disputes. It is often:

  • Less expensive than litigation
  • A structured dispute resolution process
  • Handled by an objective third-party arbitrator

Arbitration Basics

Much like mediation, arbitration services come in many forms. Whether you need assistance with real estate or business, with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA arbitration) or with a neighborhood dispute, there is an arbitration option for you.

Arbitration relies on a set of structured rules and places the decisive power in an arbiter’s hands. Both parties in a dispute will sit down and present evidence, and the arbiter will decide an appropriate and fair remedy. The arbitrator’s decision is binding and often cannot be appealed.

Certain types of arbitration can also blend with mediation, creating a slightly more informal process. This is referred to as mediation-arbitration or med-arb. Gregory M.
