Arbitrations

Arbitration Attorneys in Boise

Helping Businesses Settle Disputes throughout Idaho & America Samoa

If you’re a business owner involved in a disagreement related to your company, chances are you’d rather seek a resolution that won’t involve a lawsuit. Arbitration is a means of private conflict resolution that can help you and your opposition come to an agreement over matters involving contracts, business decisions, employment actions, and more.

Our arbitration attorneys in Boise can serve clients throughout Idaho, and our offices in American Samoa can help business owners resolve conflicts throughout the Pacific. Mooney Wieland’s attorneys can help you and the opposing party come to the table to hash out your disagreement to come to a new understanding that’s beneficial to both parties. Facilitated by a lawyer, these meetings can serve as a quick means of conflict resolution for both minor and serious disputes.

As long as both parties are willing to work out disagreements without filing a lawsuit, arbitration can be a less contentious and less risky way of getting what each one needs.

Would Arbitration Be Right for You?

There are various reasons companies may seek to arbitrate disputes with other businesses, individuals, and government agencies.

Some of these reasons include:

  • Private and confidential proceedings and settlements allow parties to come to agreements without suffering from the effects of public opinion.
  • Less hostility involved in the process. Agreeing to arbitration implies the parties may be flexible to each other’s interests and are willing to make concessions for the sake of an agreeable resolution.
  • A faster process than pursuing a lawsuit in court. Arbitration can last several months to just over a year, while lawsuits can be dragged out for years by comparison.
  • Lower costs than lawsuits even though both parties are paying for lawyers. Because disputes don’t last as long or happen in court, certain fees or costs can be avoided.
  • Flexibility that cannot be afforded in court due to laws and rules that affect how a judge must conduct court proceedings. Arbitration is a less formal process that adheres to or strays from these types of rules as needed or desired in order to accomplish a resolution.

There are, of course, reasons why arbitration may not be right for the parties involved. Because the matter is settled out of the court system, there is little transparency about how the agreement was reached and limited ability to appeal the results of arbitration, which are most often binding. In situations where you are not confident that the other party will act in good faith to reach a settlement through arbitration, you may want to consider settling your dispute in court.

Our arbitration lawyers in Boise, Idaho and American Samoa can help you assess whether pursuing a resolution through a means of alternative dispute management is right for you.
