Arbitration & ADR

Arbitration, ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) and Mediation are practice areas offering alternative ways of dispute resolution outside of the courtroom. Although they may not always be relevant or possible, there are many advantages to arbitration and ADR, including the fact that they usually cost less and take less time, they are not as formal as court, they are discreet, the results can be more specific to the client’s needs and both sides can agree as to the chosen arbitrator.
The courts in Israel tend to refrain from intervening in arbitration awards. So, although anyone can be chosen as an arbitrator, it is advisable to choose a professional and experienced arbitrator, preferably an attorney, to ensure understanding of legal issues pertaining to the dispute, and for setting clear conditions in the arbitration agreement and final decision. This will also reduce the risk of having the arbitration ruling appealed. 
The Gilad Berman law firm has many years of experience in arbitration and ADR proceedings.
