Arbitration is a legal procedure for resolving disputes using one to three impartial and qualified person called “arbitrator”. The arbitrator is a decision-maker appointed by or on behalf of the parties to the dispute to decide the issues in dispute. Unless the parties agree to a non-binding arbitration, the decision of the arbitrator is final and binding to the parties and is enforceable in courts.

The rules of evidence and the procedural rules in arbitration are much more relaxed than they are in court. Arbitration proceeding is governed by the rules of fairness and the arbitrator is required to be impartial and to make a decision based only on the evidence presented at the hearing. The arbitrator’s decision is also required to be based on the law.
