The Atlanta business litigation lawyers at our firm use any and all business dispute resolution techniques available in order to achieve the best result for our business clients. While filing a lawsuit in state or superior courts in Georgia is a viable option for our business dispute clients, the law provides for excellent dispute resolution alternatives.
Arbitration is one effective tool, especially for parties who desire a fast resolution on a complex issue. Georgia statutory code has a whole code section dealing with the procedures for pursuing arbitration in Georgia—Georgia Arbitration Code (O.C.G.A. §9-9-1.)
Arbitration is very similar to a lawsuit in the court system with some advantages to the traditional litigation of a business dispute in court. Parties, not the court, dictates how the arbitration will proceed. Through arbitration, a final hearing on the case can be scheduled as early as a few months after initiating the arbitration process. Another advantage to arbitration is the fact that the arbitrator in business dispute cases specializes or has unique experience in the area of law and subject matter that is at issue in the dispute.
Atlanta business attorneys welcome the opportunity to evaluate your situation and advise you of your options. Likely you are contractually bound by arbitration in your agreement with the other party, which governs your dispute, or arbitration may be the most cost-effective means to pursue a favorable disposition in your case. Spaulding Law assists individuals and businesses in Atlanta litigation matters, contract disputes, partnership disputes, landlord-tenant disputes, business tort matters and other business matters.
