I’ve been served with a Request for Arbitration. What should I do?
Arbitration is a contract-based dispute resolution mechanism, an alternative to court. A Request for Arbitration is what one party, the Claimant, sends to the other side to commence this process. If you have been served with a Request for Arbitration and do not have lawyers on board, there are certain technical points you should check before you respond to the other side which can give you an advantage if you do not want to go through the arbitration process.
