Arbitration is an adjudicatory process that is used in place of litigation to resolve a dispute. The parties select an individual arbitrator, or a panel of three arbitrators, who will hear evidence and render a decision in the case. Arbitrations proceed according to the arbitration rules selected by the parties. The rules of evidence are relaxed in an arbitration hearing. Most arbitrations are final and binding. However, parties may choose to make the decision an advisory opinion.
At ADR Systems, the most utilized forms of arbitration are Binding Arbitration and Tri-panel Arbitration.
Our neutrals conduct arbitrations in a variety of settings and locations. In addition to in-person arbitration, we also conduct remote dispute resolution through secure videoconferencing, telephonic and teleconferencing sessions.
