Our attorneys regularly represent clients in arbitration proceedings in a variety of forums and many have also acted as arbitrators. Crivello Carlson attorneys have appeared before the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), the Metropolitan Builders Association, the National Association of the Remodeling Industry and other arbitration forums across the country. Arbitration proceedings range from one day hearings before a single arbitrator to proceedings before panel association volunteers. The most formal process involves AAA proceedings in large and complex cases that can take from one week to several months. Our representation in each instance is designed to be as cost effective as possible while furnishing the most professional and effective trial methods for our clients.

Our attorneys have also assisted clients with preparing appropriate arbitration clauses for business transactions in order to structure the dispute resolution process in advance of any actual claim. We have represented clients in actions to compel arbitration in state and federal courts when opponents refuse to abide by contractual arbitration provisions. Similarly, we have maintained proceedings to enforce arbitration awards and execute upon resulting judgments.
