What is securities arbitration?
Arbitration is a type of alternative resolution for business disputes, one that allows you to avoid court. Unlike mediation, where negotiations take place, arbitration involves the presentation of evidence, witness testimony, and closing statements. Unlike a trial, the rules are less formal and restrictive. Instead of having your case assigned to a judge, you and the other party get to select your arbitrator(s).
In Florida, the arbitration process starts when someone (the claimant) files a claim that states a grievance and asks for a remedy. The respondent then submits a defense to the claim, arbitrators are chosen, and an arbitration hearing takes place. In an arbitration hearing, an objective third party will come in and hear your case, either a single arbitrator or a panel of three arbitrators. Their decision is final, and can rarely be appealed. Furthermore, in the case of a panel, a majority decision is needed, not a unanimous one. If an arbitrator decides in favor of the claimant, he or she may be owed financial compensation from the respondent.
