Arbitration: Informal Dispute Resolution
Should you opt for a resolution out of court, depending on the nature of your case, arbitration may be the only available route. A less formal manner of dispute resolution than a trial, parties seeking this form of dispute resolution yield their control over the outcome to a designated arbitrator while still avoiding the expenses of a trial. In binding arbitration, parties give up their right to trial, while its non-binding counterpart allows them to initiate a trial should one or both parties be dissatisfied with the arbitrator’s decision.
