Arbitration Information
What is an Arbitration?
Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in which the parties submit their dispute to a neutral third party. The neutral third party will hear the issues and make a final ruling that is binding and is enforceable in court.
What is an Arbitrator?
An Arbitrator is a neutral third-party that is either an individual or a tribunal. The arbitrator functions similarly to a judge: ruling on motions, taking evidence at a hearing, and ultimately issuing a binding arbitration award.
What are the advantages of Arbitration?
  • An Arbitration can be tailored to the unique needs of the case.
  • Arbitration proceedings are confidential.
  • The parties have influence over the process and schedule.
  • The parties can appoint the right arbitrator(s) for the case.

How do I initiate an Arbitration?
An Arbitration is initiated as the result of:

  • An Arbitration Provision in a Contract.

    (Example: Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this contract shall be submitted to binding arbitration administered by Miles Mediation & Arbitration. The number of arbitrators shall be [one or three]. The place of arbitration shall be [city, state]. [State] law shall apply. Judgment on arbitrator’s award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.)

  • An Order from the court compelling arbitration.
  • An agreement between parties to arbitrate without a contract.
