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

  • Arbitration: do you prefer arbitration or a formal court case if there is a dispute?

  • The intent of an arbitration provision in a contract is to avoid a formal court case.

  • Arbitration provisions are, in general, enforceable and typically will be binding in the same way that a civil court judgment can be enforced.

  • There are ways to appeal an arbitration decision but they are limited.

  • Arbitration is usually less expensive than a formal court case.

You should talk to an attorney for advice when considering including an arbitration provision to your business contract.
