Arbitration & Litigation

A civil action is typically commenced when parties are unable to resolve their disputes without the intervention of a third party.  Similarly, parties may, by agreement, decide to submit their disputes to arbitration.  In either case, a third party adjudicator is given the task of determining the fair result of your dispute.  Sometimes arbitration provides a more cost effective and expedient route to resolution. However, the fees of an arbitrator typically exceed court fees (as Judges to not charge the parties’ fee for their time).  Many parties will prefer arbitration for its privacy and it provides the parties an opportunity to have more control over the process and scheduling. Regardless of whether your dispute is in the form of arbitration or a traditional court proceeding, we would be more than pleased to assist you in advancing your claim or defence.
