Here are some of the key points contained in the video:


  • How do you end up in arbitration vs. in court?

  • Typically, someone has to decide - do we follow the arbitration clause or just file a lawsuit?

  • Parties usually just file a formal lawsuit as if there is no arbitration clause.

  • There can be some negatives to ignoring the arbitration clause.



You should have your attorney take a look at the contract and then make a careful decision on how to proceed based on a through legal analysis of your case and the contract.
