Alternative Dispute Resolution Law
How Does Arbitration Work?
In arbitration, a panel of one to three arbitrators hears and weighs the arguments and evidence of both sides of a case, then renders a binding decision. The arbitrators generally include at least one person with extensive securities knowledge and can also include accountants, attorneys, sales representatives, bankers, educators, retired judges and other professionals. Unlike court proceedings, arbitration usually doesn’t involve lengthy oral depositions, motions, or appeals.
