It’s your first, or one of your first, arbitrations. It may have started as a court lawsuit and was compelled to arbitration on a motion, or it may have started with a demand for arbitration pursuant to the client’s contract providing for arbitration of disputes instead of court litigation. Either way, in order to get a successful result, the case assessment and strategy requires understanding how arbitration is fundamentally different from a case to be tried in state or federal court.

Because arbitration is intended to be a more streamlined, efficient process of dispute resolution, it generally allows less pre-hearing discovery and no appeal in order to bring a cost-effective, quicker and final end to disputes arising from contracts, although the range of disputes arbitrated may go well beyond contract theories.
