Arbitration is an alternative to litigation and as such is a form of alternative dispute resolution. Arbitration involves an independent third party who forms a judgement about the issues upon which the original parties cannot agree, and makes a recommendation based on their expert opinion. The arbitrator’s judgement may be binding or non-binding depending on what the parties originally agreed. See also Alternative Dispute Resolution.
