Many contracts contain provisions that require disputes arising from the contract to be resolved through arbitration rather than courtroom litigation. This means, instead of litigating your dispute in the courtroom, your case is heard by an arbitrator, or a group of arbitrators who will issue a legally binding ruling in your case. Arbitrators’ awards are not subject to appeal, except in rare circumstances.
At Ford O’Brien Landy LLP, our attorneys have extensive experience in multiple types of commercial arbitration. If you have questions or concerns about these matters, we encourage you to contact us today.
Experienced Attorneys Representing Broker-Dealers In FINRA Arbitration
Arbitral forums, such as the AAA, the ICC, JAMS, and FINRA, each have their own rules and procedures that can vary significantly from those of courtroom litigation. It is important that the lawyer you hire to take your arbitration case understands the specific procedures being used in that particular forum.
Sometimes taking a case to arbitration is advantageous to one party or the other, and sometimes it is good for both. With offices in New York City, Miami, and Austin, Ford O’Brien Landy LLP is well-acquainted with multiple arbitral forums. Our attorneys also have experience litigating the question of whether disputes belong in arbitration in the first place.
