The alternative to the traditional court method is alternative dispute resolution.
Paizes Attorneys also offers alternate dispute resolution services mainly through the method of arbitration. This service is for clients who do not wish to follow the traditional court method of litigation.
Arbitration is usually set out in corporate contracts and is either forced upon by one party, or is done through mutual agreement by all parties.
The arbitration is held in front of a nominated arbitrator and the procedure for the arbitration is determined by the parties and the arbitrator.
