Expedited arbitration hearings are a way to speed up the pre-hearing conference and in many cases may eliminate the pre-hearing conference all together. Here at PhloxADR, we have created a list of general guidelines and rule sets that have accommodated many an arbitration.

You do not lose any functionality with an expedited hearing, you are simply getting to the arbitration even faster. Customization is still possible as these rules are not set in stone, just thick wet concrete. We created these to lower prices as many times prices were being inflated by wasting time and arbitrator overkill.

Arbitrator Overkill

Each side evidences this:

  • (6) witnesses
  • 5,000 pages of documentation
  • (4) hours of testimony
  • 3 expert witnesses

This is over 5 days of evidence!

When this evidence each was sufficient:

  • (2) witnesses
  • 1,000 pages
  • (2) hours of testimony
  • (1) expert witness.

This is 1 day of evidence!
