Arbitration

There's always a way.

Hon. Jerry M. Orbach, (Ret.)

ADR Systems offers the most efficient arbitration process available.

Arbitration is an adjudicatory process that is used in place of litigation to resolve a dispute. The parties select an individual arbitrator, or a panel of three arbitrators, who will hear evidence and render a decision in the case. Arbitrations proceed according to the arbitration rules selected by the parties. The rules of evidence are relaxed in an arbitration hearing. Most arbitrations are final and binding. However, parties may choose to make the decision an advisory opinion.

At ADR Systems, the most utilized forms of arbitration are Binding Arbitration and Tri-panel Arbitration.

For your convenience, ADR Systems has created Commercial Arbitration Rules that are comprehensive, yet straight-forward and easy to use.  To access the Commercial Demand for Arbitration and Instructions form, click here.

We have also designed Health Care Arbitration Rules to help you resolve your nursing home cases quickly and effectively.  To request a copy of our rules, click here.

Judge Nudelman was excellent.  Many times, attorneys on the case wanted to terminate the mediation, but Judge Nudelman kept us going until it was resolved.  Great job!!
