In today’s world, many disputes that used to be litigated in the courtroom are now settled through the arbitration process, either because of a prior agreement between the parties or because the parties believe it is a better forum for them for a particular dispute. The formality and rules for these arbitrations varies from case to case. Our attorneys represent clients in a wide variety of arbitration matters, from relatively informal hearings with a mutually selected arbitrator to more formal proceedings before the American Arbitration Association.
