Arbitration is the submission of a dispute to one or more impartial and independent persons for a final and binding decision.

Both parties attend the hearinng and have an opportunity to argue their position.

Decisions or awards are made in writing and are generally final and binding on the parties involved in the matter.

Arbitration has substantial advantages over judicial proceedings particularly in matters in which the subject matter of the dispute is highly technical and confidentiality is highly valuable.
