Business-to-Business Arbitration

The Problem

The promise of arbitration was that it would be a quicker, less expensive, and more efficient way to resolve disputes. In reality, arbitration is often just as costly and time consuming as going to court.

Efficient procedures and low fees reduce the total costs of dispute resolution for the parties and ensure that Forum arbitrations are affordable, even for smaller claims. Our arbitrators are seasoned attorneys and former judges who are required to issue decisions that follow the applicable law.
