Arbitration is an ideal avenue for providing justice to individuals and businesses who cannot easily access the court system due to cost or geographical constraints.
The American Bar Association estimates that as many as 100 million Americans are shut out of the legal system due to the high cost of justice. Globally, that number is dramatically higher.
Generally speaking, arbitration is faster, more convenient, and less costly than litigation. net-ARB maximizes all three of those factors!
|Fast — Registration to decision in weeks. Fastest turnaround anywhere!|
|Convenient — Participate anytime, day or night, without leaving your home or office!|
|Affordable — Starting at less than $300 per party!|
More good reasons to use arbitration:
- Arbitration is less formal than a court trial; parties often represent themselves.
- No jury fees, no court reporter.
- The decision is binding. There is no appeal. Courts respect arbitration decisions.
- No appeal means the arbitration decision is final. It also means no lengthy, expensive, appeals of court-issued decisions.
- Arbitration is private. Anything filed with a court remains public record, open and searchable to the public eye.
- Arbitration can be less adversarial than a legal battle. Sometimes, working relationships, whether business or family, would be welcome or necessary after the dispute is resolved. The informality of arbitration lessens everyone's tension while the dispute is quickly resolved in a binding yet casual manner.
As documented in numerous surveys1
, consumers do at least as well in arbitration as they do in the court system. Another important fact the surveys found is that individual parties receive more of what they ask for in arbitration than they do in court.1- National Center for State Courts, National Workrights Institute, Harris Interactive Survey, Mark Fellows/National Arbitration Forum, Michael Delikat and Morris M.
