In their quest for predictability and affordability, businesses include binding commercial arbitration provisions in their agreements forcing Plaintiffs/Claimants to resolve their commercial and business disputes in a private forum. In most cases in the United States that means the claims are heard by either JAMS or the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). Arbitration is very different than court litigation and it’s important to hire attorneys familiar with the unique rules for commercial arbitration in each forum.
Our Chicago Arbitration Attorneys have arbitrated hundreds of matters and are very familiar with AAA, JAMS, and other providers of alternative dispute resolution. In order to realize arbitration’s promise of greater certainty and lower costs, you (or your attorney) must take advantage of the control you are given.
