Arbitration is a contractual process in which parties to a dispute use an independent, impartial third party (an arbitrator or tribunal) to resolve the matter out-of-court. This is a faster and more cost-effective alternative to litigation.
CPR Dispute Resolution's arbitration rules offer parties to a business dispute a variety of options including domestic, international, administered, non-administered, expedited, and appellate rules, as well as industry-specific rules in employment, construction, and patent and trade secrets.
