  • Business torts and fraud claims

  • Non-compete agreements

Avoid Trial Through Arbitration

Arbitration can save disagreeing parties from the often costly and time-consuming litigation process. It is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) commonly used to resolve issues involving employment contracts, credit card agreements, and retail contracts.

The Arbitration Process

Like litigation, arbitration is a formal process. It involves presenting a business dispute to an unbiased third party—selected by the involved parties—for resolution. Your chosen arbitrator does not have to be a lawyer; it can be a panel or an expert in the field surrounding the dispute. During an arbitration hearing, both sides will present evidence to the arbitrator, who will then give an opinion.

The arbitration process may be either binding or non-binding. When it is binding, the decision is final, can be enforced by a court, and can only be appealed on very narrow grounds. In a non-binding situation, the arbitrator's award is advisory and can only be finalized if it is accepted by both parties.

Arbitration vs. Mediation

Mediation differs from arbitration in the sense that its process is informal and not binding. Rather than imposing a decision, as an arbitrator would, a mediator aims to bring the parties together by discussion in the hopes of reaching an agreement.

Fighting for You During Litigation

Sometimes, a business conflict can’t be resolved outside of court. When you need to take your case to trial, we’ll be here to aggressively advocate on your behalf. You’ve put all your energy into your business. You deserve to work with attorneys who will do the same for you. Tell us your side of the story so we get started on a custom-tailored plan of action.
