Understand the practical logistics of an arbitration that may arise from a dispute about your business contract.

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

Where will the arbitration physically take place? What city or county? An attorney’s office? The courthouse? City hall?

  • As far as city or county, arbitration often takes place where a related lawsuit would be (or is) taking place.
  • Some arbitration agreements will dictate what city or county the arbitration must occur in.
  • Arbitration can usually occur anywhere that the parties agree.
  • The arbitration hearing could take place at a private law office or the arbitrator’s office.
  • Arbitration doesn't usually occur in the courthouse.

Occasionally a court will enter an order as to the logistical specifics of arbitration, such as the hearing location.
