Arbitration, a form of Alternative dispute resolution (ADR), is a technique for the resolution of disputes outside the courts. The parties to a dispute refer it to arbitration by one or more persons, and agree to be bound by the arbitration decision. A third party reviews the evidence in the case and imposes a decision that is legally binding on both sides and enforceable in the courts. Advantages: Arbitration is often faster than litigation in court, Arbitration can be cheaper and more flexible for businesses, Arbitral proceedings and an arbitral award are generally non-public, and can be made confidentia. Disadvantages: Discovery may be more limited in arbitration or entirely nonexistent, The potential to generate billings by attorneys may be less than pursuing the dispute through trial, Arbitration may be subject to pressures from powerful law firms representing the stronger and wealthier party.
