Florida Arbitration - Arbitration in Alabama | Upchurch Watson White & Max

Arbitration is an adjudicative process in which an experienced third-party neutral (or panel of neutrals) serves to resolve disputes through an orderly hearing and award process without judicial intervention. Done properly, it can be a cost-effective, expedient and efficient means of resolving complex commercial disputes.

Members of Upchurch Watson White & Max – many of whom are former judges, magistrates or experienced trial lawyers – have developed a national reputation for providing arbitration services. Members of the firm are frequently asked to arbitrate claims initiated under the auspices of the American Arbitration Association (AAA), the International Institute of Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR), FINRA, and the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) and as privately administered proceedings. Past experience as commercial litigators and judicial officers has provided UWWM professionals with a working knowledge of a variety of commercial issues which are often the subject of contractual arbitration processes – employment, professional liability, and construction, to name a few. We also conduct health care arbitrations involving providers and facilities.

UWWM is an efficient alternative to the national ADR providers who have been criticized for exorbitant expenses such as:

  • Registration fees determined by the amount in controversy, sometimes payable by both claimant and counter-claimant.
  • Administrative costs, which are the fees charged by the institution to run and manage the case by reference to a formula.

Our arbitrators are now offering streamlined arbitrations, with no charge for administration and use of our firm’s facilities. They also offer on-site presentations to your transactional lawyers concerning best practices in the drafting of arbitration clauses.
