Advantages of Arbitration This is a form of an alternative dispute resolution, and it has gained large acceptance in the business world for the sole purpose of settling disputes. It is an important aspect of your business, and it should be included when signing the contracts. The main purpose of the Arbitration clause is to prevent all the disputing parties to file cases in the civil courts. Because you will not attend the court sessions this will save you time and also the expenses involved in processing a court case. This procedure should never be forced to either of the aggrieved parties; it has to be on an agreement otherwise a court case should be filed. Some of the certified agencies that have been approved to listen to these cases included the American Arbitration Association. There are also associations that are available, and they can also be used and identified in the contract. The arbitration can be less expensive depending on the circumstances, as both the alternative dispute resolution providers and the arbitrators charge for the service. This process is cost effective. This the process is more favorable to both the parties involved because you agree on the meetings, time, venue and the dates and so you have full control over the whole matter. Use the most best state law. When you choose a local state law you also will get a chance to choose a preferred law firm within your locality to handle your case if you don’t agree on the negotiation level. Hire a mediator who is qualified and also if you don’t agree and then you have to take the dispute to court the law firm should have your best interest at heart. For cutting down on the costs restrict your mediator on the things he can talk about. They should be allowed to state or mention the winner or loser and without going into the deeper details of the case. However, this option can be risky especially if the case has complicated issues, which required relief other than the monetary compensations. By deciding to do this allowing the judge this authority, you lose some of the control over cost, but it is important that you know the basis for the judge reaching that decision. Through the objective of a certified mediator, arbitration allows the parties to have an opportunity, in reviewing their position and also restricting for appeals. They also have time and the opportunity to consider the proposed contracts violation through going through of the objectives. Through the help of the mediator they can review the contracts and make great progress on the case. The mediator should be impartial. The settlement is reached privately and without involving the public because this is considered a private matter rather than public. In the Binding arbitration process the judge listens to both parties evidence before making the final determination.
