Arbitration & Litigation
Legal disputes can be handled through arbitration or litigation, and both can be effective, depending on your unique situation and what your relationship is like with the parties involved.
Arbitration is considered Alternative Dispute Resolution, and occurs when both sides agree to meet and respect the decision of the arbitrator, who is typically an attorney with experience in your respective fields. In this way, arbitration is known as a private settlement between parties because it doesn’t involve the court system.
Arbitration can be both voluntary and mandatory – it can be a required process for parties if they had a pre-established clause demanding arbitration if a dispute were to ever arise.
While arbitration involves a private settlement, litigation involves going to court to settle disputes among parties. In court, the sides offer their facts and arguments through lawyers, which ends with the judge giving their decision. If parties don’t agree with the decision, they may make an appeal. The litigation process is often expensive, which is why many individuals attempt to try settling disputes civilly through arbitration.
