American Arbitration Association

A private company that provides support for arbitration. Arbitration is an extrajudicial means of resolving a dispute in which the parties agree to make their cases before an impartial person or panel. While the American Arbitration Association does not serve as this person or panel, it can provide assistance to the arbitrators. For example, it may provide the rules that the arbitrators must follow. It also may appoint an arbitrator if the disputing parties cannot agree on one. It is based in New York City.
