In arbitration, you’ll want the best arbitration lawyers on your side. The stakes are high in an arbitration, which makes it all the more important that you have the right folks fighting for you. Arbitration isn’t exactly like a courtroom or even a negotiating table. That’s why it requires lawyers who have been to arbitration before to help. Since they know everything that can happen, they can give you an advantage.
One way that arbitration is like a courtroom is that there are typically multiple arbitrators. For all intents and purposes, they fulfill the duties of judges. Each of the two sides typically picks one arbitrator. Then, those two choose a third arbitrator. As the two sides present stories and evidence, the arbitrators take it all into consideration. Then, they give written opinions. As you can see from this example, it’s critically important to have lawyers who know what they’re doing in arbitration.
Arbitration presents a lot of opportunities as well as challenges. Typically, it’s less expensive than litigation itself. By that same token, it can also go much faster than litigation. When you have a dispute that you (and the other party) want to be solved quickly, arbitration can be the way to go. If you have great arbitration lawyers on your side, you can have a decision that advances your own interests in a short amount of time.
One of the more popular reasons to go into arbitration is if you’re concerned that you’ll be sued by an opposing party. If you’re in arbitration, you can’t be sued by an opposing party. Most courts won’t allow it. This gives you time to mull over your options and figure things out best. By having the best attorneys on your side, you’ll have an even better chance. They can sit down with you to determine the best way to go forward.
In a lawsuit, appeals are common. If the case doesn’t go the way you want, appeals exist to give you another chance at setting things right. Arbitration however, is binding. Traditionally, it can be significantly more difficult to overturn arbitration, as opposed to a determination by a court. That’s why it’s all the more important to have great lawyers on your side. With arbitration, you usually only get one shot.
While arbitration is usually less expensive than litigation or going into a courtroom, that doesn’t mean it’s entirely inexpensive. The great attorneys at Abkarian & Associates charge reasonable fees so that anyone can get the justice they deserve. There is still, however, a cost. That’s all the more reason to have the best attorneys fighting for you. With a 98% success rate, Abkarian & Associates can argue for your case in arbitration, at the negotiating table, or anywhere else.
When you go into arbitration against someone else, you may be at a disadvantage if they’re bigger, or if they’re a large corporation or richer person. In arbitration, the larger party is often at an advantage, as they can overrun the smaller party. Thus, you need lawyers on your side who have a history of successfully advocating for their clients in arbitration. Seasoned lawyers in arbitration can help you to get what you want, no matter what.
That being said, arbitration is, when compared to a courtroom specifically, less of a “fight.” Often, it’s about two parties working together to reach the best settlements. This is another reason that attorneys very experienced with arbitration can come in handy. They know when to push the advantage, and they know when to seek that middle ground. It takes a skillful combination of both to get the most satisfying outcome.
For many business people, when they decide to go into arbitration, it just makes sense to them to do it themselves without arbitration lawyers at their side. While this may feel natural, it’s invariably a mistake. A lawyer with arbitration experience knows so much more than the layperson (even the successful layperson) and can put that experience to use in arbitration. The layperson is always dealing with arbitration for the first time, the attorney isn’t.
A lawyer who specializes in arbitration can do just that: specialize in the arbitration. You can focus on your business and your own life, secure in the knowledge that your attorney is “burning the midnight oil” for you. Instead of having to devote all of your time to figuring out your arbitration, there’s a whole team of attorneys working hard to make sure that your arbitration goes as well as possible. Hiring lawyers for arbitration is a great way to safeguard your business as well as your arbitration.
Another downside to representing yourself in your arbitration is that you’re in your arbitration. You have no distance on it. As you’re right in the middle of it, it can be hard for you to “see the forest for the trees,” so to speak. An unbiased, outside observer (like an attorney) can see the strengths in your case and arguments as well as any potential weaknesses. Combined with their legal experience, they can accentuate your strengths while smoothing over or even eliminating your case’s weaknesses.
In fact, going into arbitration without a lawyer gains the businessperson no special advantage. They aren’t seen as “more authentic” or anything like that. Indeed, they’re just at the natural disadvantage to any other party that goes into arbitration with a lawyer on their side. If you were to have someone look at your business’s financial records, wouldn’t you hire a top-flight accountant? Hiring lawyers for arbitration disputes works exactly the same way.
The pros at Abkarian & Associates have represented many clients in business disputes in practically every industry that you can think of. If a business could have some kind of dispute, they’ve argued (and successfully represented) companies on all sides. That experience can be put to use in your arbitration, so that things break the way you’re hoping. It’s not enough to just have a strong case in arbitration; you need someone who’s been there before, too.
Very few firms have as experienced of arbitration lawyers as Abkarian & Associates. For example, Mr. Abkarian himself has been a former arbitrator for Los Angeles Superior Court. He’s heard the compelling arguments and the less compelling ones as well. He can bring all of that knowledge to your case. By fine turning your arguments, he can help you to make the ones that will get you the most of what you want out of the arbitration.
There’s a lot on the line in a big arbitration. Often, it involves keeping a business at its absolute best. You want the best for you, your family and your company. Sometimes, that means getting someone out of the company. Sometimes, it means keeping you in when others would force you out. Whatever brought you to arbitration, someone from Abkarian & Associates is willing to sit down with you and figure out the best path going forward for your case.
Part of what makes a firm like Abkarian & Associates so great is that it has a wide focus. There are plenty of attorneys who are focused only on personal injury, motorcycle accidents and the like. However, there are plenty of high powered, richly experienced arbitration lawyers who are motivated solely to get you everything you want out of arbitration. Going into arbitration without one of them at your side is going into arbitration unarmed.
Abkarian & Associates has years of experience in all kinds of arbitration disputes. In fact, as a full service litigation and arbitration firm, they can walk you through every step of a business dispute. It’s natural to feel frustrated in a business dispute, but they can make the process easier.
