Legal definition of arbitrator
Dispute Resolution Legal Terminology

arbitrator

1
A private, neutral person chosen to arbitrate a disagreement, as opposed to a court of law. An arbitrator could be used to settle any non-criminal dispute, and many business contracts make provisions for an arbitrator in the event of a disagreement.

In the United States, the American Arbitration Association (AAA) provides services to individuals and organizations who wish to resolve conflicts out of court.

The American Arbitration Association is the nation's largest full-service alternative dispute resolution (ADR) provider, addressing disputes involving, but not limited to, employment, intellectual property, consumer, technology, health care, financial services, construction, and international trade conflicts.
