Arbitration is a procedure in which a dispute is submitted to one or more neutral arbitrators who make a decision. Parties may elect arbitration to resolve a dispute that has arisen or they may have signed a contract that requires arbitration instead of going to court.
Arbitrations are private and confidential and the parties generally select the arbitrator(s) by agreement or through a neutral process. Arbitration agreements often spell out where the arbitration will take place and the procedural and evidentiary rules that will be followed. In a final and binding arbitration, the ability to appeal is very limited, which brings finality to a case sooner than court litigation.
