ARBITRATION introduces one or more neutral experts to hear evidence in a dispute and to render an award. Binding arbitration requires parties to accept the arbitration award and waive their right to legal action. The opportunity for appeal is limited.

Arbitration has become a primary alternative to litigation for many business and community leaders because of its prompt, private and economical process.
