How long does arbitration typically take? Does it usually require multiple sessions?
Amy Zylman Shimalla’s Answer:
It all depends on the issues. If parties are only arbitrating personal property, one session might be enough. If they are arbitrating an entire case, it will likely involve a case management conference to discuss and agree on the process, whereafter it may take several days to try. The beautiful thing is that the parties set the schedule which can be structured to accommodate their needs. The Court’s schedule is not flexible at all and it can take months to try a case, and then additional months before a decision is issued.
