Arbitration

Lawyers for Property Owners in New York

Disputes related to real property are common. When disputes cannot be resolved through negotiation, litigation may be necessary. However, in certain circumstances arbitration is an advisable alternative to a lawsuit.

In arbitration, the parties agree to have a knowledgeable third-party “arbitrator” conduct a hearing and decide their dispute. Since the process is a product of the parties’ agreement the rules governing it can be more flexible, more efficient and tailored to the specific parties and dispute. An arbitrator who is knowledgeable regarding the subject matter of the dispute can be selected thereby increasing the chances for reasoned and appropriate decision.

In the right circumstances a dispute can be decided by arbitration in a manner that is faster and less costly than litigation.
