What Is The First Step In Arbitration?

The most important step in initiating arbitration is the agreement to arbitrate. This agreement can be of one of two kinds: it can take the form of a future­dispute arbitration clause in a contract or, where the parties did not provide in advance for arbitration, it can take the form of a submission of an existing dispute to arbitration. The AAA will, without charge, attempt to get all parties to agree to arbitration of such a dispute.
