There are two aspects to any arbitration claim in Alabama. The first is making sure you can enforce the arbitration agreement, assuming the other party is not a willing participant. The second is prosecuting or defending the arbitration successfully. Since its inception, Ferguson, Frost, Moore & Young have represented its clients victoriously in all stages of arbitration.
Despite the application of the Federal Arbitration Act, Alabama historically disfavored arbitration as a means of dispute resolution, and aspects of that disfavor remain. Our lawyers have litigated the enforceability of arbitration clauses throughout the state and have successfully appealed erroneous decisions to the Alabama Supreme Court and the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. But this is only part of the equation.
In addition to enforcing the rights of our clients pursuant to the initial arbitration agreement, our lawyers have defended and litigated claims in arbitration under the rules of the American Arbitration Association, the National Arbitration Forum, and JAMS. Ferguson, Frost, Moore & Young have also mediated cases for client per the mediation procedures of AAA, and further have litigated construction and commercial claims subject to AAA policies and procedures.
