Litigation Or Arbitration?

Attorney Manish Borde excels at finding suitable legal remedies through litigation in court or arbitration outside of court. He has exemplary experience handling multidimensional disputes in the courtroom for matters such as:

  • Fiduciary duties
  • Probate disputes
  • Secured transactions
  • Securities issues
  • Breach of contracts
  • Accounting malpractice
  • Fraudulent transfers
  • Director and officer liability
  • Shareholder complaints
  • Employment regulation and compliance
  • Real property disputes
  • Dissolution of corporations
  • Creditors’ rights
  • Collections judgments
  • Enforcing arbitral awards

But what happens when a contract mandates arbitration for resolving disputes? Employment contracts and commercial agreements increasingly impose arbitration clauses for dispute resolution.

Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) where matters remain outside of a traditional courtroom. Disputing parties bring their issues, evidence and arguments before one or more arbitrators or arbiters, who act as judge and jury for rendering a decision and an arbitration award. The arbitrator’s decision is generally final and legally enforceable. Some exceptions may apply.

Discover The Merits Of An Analytical Problem-Solving Approach

There are distinct advantages to arbitration over litigation in certain circumstances. Parties can choose an arbitrator who has the expertise they need for understanding a specific technical issue. Proceedings in arbitration usually commence quicker and are private. The arbitrator’s final decision is not public domain. On the other hand, paying for the arbitrator and the arbitration process and waiving the right to have a judge and jury decide a case in court could be disadvantageous. It is rare to appeal an arbitrator’s final decision so an incorrect decision may not have a remedy.
