Follow the Contract’s Arbitration Clause or File a Lawsuit?

Attorney Jason McGrath explains some things to consider when considering whether to follow a contract’s arbitration clause or file a lawsuit in this short video.

Here are some of the key points contained in the video:

  • How do you end up in arbitration vs. in court?
  • Typically, someone has to decide – do we follow the arbitration clause or just file a lawsuit?
  • Parties usually just file a formal lawsuit as if there is no arbitration clause.
  • There can be some negatives to ignoring the arbitration clause.

You should have your attorney take a look at the contract and then make a careful decision on how to proceed based on a through legal analysis of your case and the contract.
