Arbitration attorneys

Not all disputes are heard in a court of law. Many disputes are subject to an arbitration provision. This usually occurs when the parties agree that their dispute will be heard by a neutral party - the arbitrator or an arbitration panel. 

Most arbitrations are heard before the American Arbitration Association (AAA) or the Financial Industry Regulation Authority (FINRA). AAA arbitrations can encompass a wide variety of disputes - from franchise disputes to partnership/shareholder disputes. FINRA arbitrations encompass disputes or claims involving FINRA brokerage firms.  

Our arbitration attorneys are skilled at handling a wide range of arbitration matters. Arbitration requires experience and the ability to litigate matters in a more informal setting. Despite being a more informal forum than a court, arbitration forums each have their own unique set of rules and procedures that require an attorney with experience. Just like an action in a court of law, an arbitration dispute must be aggressively litigated. A skilled arbitration attorney knows the precise manner in which to use a comprehensive legal strategy to produce a quick resolution in arbitration disputes.     

If your dispute is subject to an arbitration provision, you should be represented by an attorney who has experience in arbitration. The Siskopoulos Law Firm, LLP has experience in arbitrations before both the AAA and FINRA.
