But in recent years there has been a growing sentiment that anticipated cost-efficiencies in arbitrations have been diminished or lost entirely because of the manner in which arbitrations are being conducted. Complaints have been made that, rather than being a streamlined method of dispute resolution, arbitrations have been perverted into litigations, with costly and extensive discovery and prolonged hearings, with the only functional distinction being that the dispute is resolved by a paid jurist or jurists. Criticism of and concern about the protracted and expensive nature of arbitration has been voiced with increasing regularity.
