Arbitration


Peter has presided over any number of arbitrations, large and small, and is available on a sliding scale cost basis that provides for a fair, insightful and final resolution of the dispute with far less expense and time than litigation. In person, video or written hearings and submissions are possible, depending on what is most suitable and cost effective for you case.

Arbitration

  • is a confidential process of fact-finding and application of the law by the arbitrator to reach a result that does not require the consent of the parties to that result. The parties present the facts and law, and the arbitrator provides the result, for which there are only limited rights of appeal.
  • requires an agreement among the parties only to arbitration process itself.
  • at its best is a decisive, efficient, cost-effective and reasoned process that allows the parties to move beyond their dispute far more quickly and with substantially less cost than through litigation.
  • New Commercial Rule of the American Arbitration Association have substantially encouraged the streamlined, effective management of cases. See a sample case management order (from a case in which I am sole arbitrator) that tracks and implements Rule P-2 of the new AAA Rules.
