Whether you are voluntarily entering into arbitration or are seeking an arbitrator to serve on a panel during forced arbitration, Tomassian, Throckmorton & Inouye LLP will carefully review the arguments presented by both sides before delivering terms for a settlement.
Removing uncertainty from the dispute resolution process can be a source of comfort for many people. Other potential benefits of engaging in arbitration include:
An arbitrator is a neutral party who listens to testimony, considers evidence and then renders a decision — unlike a mediator, who actively participates in discussions and attempts to influence the parties. In the case of nonbinding arbitration, parties are free to reject the arbitrator’s decision and escalate the dispute to trial. In binding arbitration, both sides agree going in that they will accept whatever the arbitrator decides.
An arbitrator must not only be of unimpeachable character but also must have the business acumen to understand all the ramifications of their decision. Our attorneys have the integrity, knowledge and experience to provide an even-handed evaluation of any conflict.
