Arbitration was designed as a quicker, more efficient substitute for litigation.

The process operates within “procedural due process” standards but with greater flexibility than judicial process. It was intended to allow for decision by someone with specific expertise in the subject of the dispute. Where the dispute is based on a contract, as most often is the case, the arbitrator’s central purpose is to effectuate the intent of the parties to the contract. The process has evolved, but these core elements remain central to arbitration. Vested with extraordinary powers, the arbitrator is part manager, part referee and part decision-maker.
