Arbitration is an extremely popular mechanism for the resolution of commercial disputes. One of the main advertised benefits of arbitration is that it is more cost-effective than traditional litigation. While this is often true, it does not mean that arbitration is always cheap.

In addition, while arbitration costs are typically recoverable by the prevailing party, the risk of losing alone can deter parties from bringing an arbitration to enforce their rights.
The Benefits of Working with Parabellum as Early in the Litigation Process as Possible

Engaging early with Parabellum preserves options for your company to achieve its litigation goals.
