What exactly is arbitration?

Many of you have no doubt heard of arbitration, but never really gave it much consideration, thinking it was only for lawyers and judges to understand.

We are here to tell you that arbitration is known as an alternative administrative remedy, so on this section of our site we are going to give a brief overview of exactly what arbitration is, and the aspects of its administrative ability to bring relief to parties without going into court.

"I have been told for years never go into court, now I understand why!"

One of our clients had made this comment, after having done research on various subjects. And the person could not understand why they were advised never to go into court, that they should never go to court attempting to obtain redress, that there is little chance that redress may be had.

Although we cannot fully agree with the above statement, we can say that arbitration is an alternative remedy, and it is available to everyone who chooses and/or wishes to avail themselves of this widely used provision.
