Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution where parties refer their matter to one or more neutral arbitrators for a binding determination. The neutral arbitrator reviews the evidence and renders a decision that is legally binding. The use of arbitration is often mandated by the terms of employment or commercial contracts. Even without an arbitration agreement, parties may also voluntarily submit their dispute to arbitration.
Parties select arbitration as a method to achieve faster resolution of their disputes, as well as perceived cost savings over traditional litigation. Parties can select arbitrators with specific expertise in a subject matter.
