Arbitration Services

Tollefsen Law provides experienced arbitration counsel for businesses. Arbitration is a creature of contract augmented by federal and state statutes. It is often described as a fast private cheaper alternative to litigation in court.

In practice arbitration is often more expensive and burdensome than litigation in court. Not only must each side pay the high hourly fees of three arbitrators, the burden of discovery is the same as in the courts. The arbitrator's decision is appealable on very narrow grounds. The courts do not consider whether the arbitrator fairly understood the facts or the law.

Do not agree to arbitration without fully evaluating the risks. Arbitration is a waiver of the right to jury trial and the right to meaningful appellate review. Arbitration often favors the stronger party which is why it is routinely included in contracts with consumers and in contracts between investment houses and their clients.

International Arbitration

Tollefsen Law arbitrates under the New York Convention and Bilateral Investment Treaties. Please contact us for more information.
