Arbitration can be as expensive and as time consuming as litigation, but it has the following advantages:
- Arbitration is in a private forum whereas court is a public forum
- You choose your arbitrator (based on experience and expertise) whereas you never get to choose your judge
- Timing/scheduling is much more flexible in arbitration (for example, an arbitrator may hear something afterhours, when a court would not)
- The process is more flexible and less formal
- The process proceeds much more quickly
