Arbitration

A FLORIDA SUPREME COURT QUALIFIED ARBITRATOR DEDICATED TO THE RESOLUTION OF YOUR DISPUTE

Arbitration is a process where parties present their arguments to an arbitrator in the format of a hearing. According to the Florida Statutes, arbitration means a process whereby a neutral third person or panel, called an arbitrator or arbitration panel, considers the facts and arguments presented by the parties and renders a decision, which may be binding, or nonbinding. The arbitration process is less formal than court.

If arbitration is non-binding, parties are given the ability to ultimately reject the decision made by the arbitrator. Some mediations result in an impasse (no agreement reached) and it is sometimes necessary to explore another alternative dispute resolution forum such as arbitration to make a decision.

ROLE OF ARBITRATOR

In arbitration, parties agree to present their arguments to an arbitrator for a ruling.  In Florida, a single arbitrator or a panel of arbitrators can conduct arbitration. Unlike the mediator’s role in mediation, an arbitrator or arbitration panel is given the authority to make the decision. Arbitrators have no vested interest in the arbitration proceeding.  Arbitrators generally ask questions, weigh the evidence, then making a ruling on the issues before them.

BENEFITS OF BINDING ARBITRATION

When considering whether to use arbitration as an alternative to trial, arbitration offers many potential benefits including:

  • ALTERNATIVE TO TRIAL
  • FASTER THAN COURT SYSTEM ROUTE
  • LESS COSTLY THAN COURT
  • MORE FLEXIBILITY IN SCHEDULING
  • PROCEEDINGS MORE PRIVATE THAN COURT
