Arbitration in Tokyo, Japan 


About Arbitration

Arbitration, a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), is a technique for the resolution of disputes outside the courts, where the parties to a dispute refer it to one or more persons. This third party reviews the relevant evidence and imposes a legally enforceable decision. 

There are two different forms of arbitration: binding and non-binding. In binding arbitration, parties must agree to abide by the arbitrator's decision. While in non-binding arbitration, the process is used to help establish an advisory opinion - which the opposing parties may or may not abide by. Arbitrations follow the evidential and procedural regularity of court proceedings but take place out of court in a less formal and less rigorous setting than litigation.
