In arbitration, the disputing parties will present their case/argument to an arbitrator. It is similar to a court procedure and is the most formal type of alternative dispute resolution.

Arbitration is particularly useful if the dispute is highly technical, or if a high level of confidentiality is required. A person who has expertise in the field may act as arbitrator.

What to do…

  • Contact an alternative dispute resolution provider listed on the National Alternative Dispute Resolution Advisory Council website.
  • Look in your local business telephone directory under ‘arbitration’ or ‘dispute resolution’ to find a practitioner.
  • Contact your industry association or union to find an arbitrator with expertise in your industry.
