Agreement to Arbitrate

If you failed to have an Arbitration Clause in place in advance and now find yourself in a dispute, it may not be too late. However, you now need to convince your adversary to voluntarily agree to have eMediate hear the issue. This is more difficult than preparing in advance, but may be possible in the interests of economy, privacy and ease. If you find yourself in this predicament, we may be able to help. Click here for our invitation widget.

If you have convinced your adversary that mediation and arbitration are preferable to the alternative (litigation), you should both sign the sample contract in the box below, or one similar, and send it to us.

By doing this, you will keep your dispute out of public courts. Your attorney may discourage this. Remember, many attorneys earn money by filing lawsuits, which you want to avoid.

In the future, prepare in advance by including this clause in all of your new contracts. Meanwhile, copy the agreement below, complete, print and send it to us. Now you can initiate a claim with eMediate.

If you have any questions, contact us here, or if you would like a free e-consultation, contact here.


This is an agreement between ___________________________________ (name) and __________________________________ (other name) to enter into arbitration. We have a disagreement regarding _______________________
______________________________________________ ______________________________________________ (brief description of the disagreement and/or contract in dispute) and wish to settle this and future disputes through binding arbitration. eMediate shall have exclusive authority to resolve this dispute and any future dispute between us relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this contract and any above-mentioned contract including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these agreements are void or voidable according to its rules current at the time the dispute is filed. Any dispute or claim filed in a public court or other private court is a breach of these contracts and is grounds for immediate dismissal of the claim wrongly filed. A final decision and award by eMediate is binding and can be filed wherever required to effect an end to the dispute and secure just compensation.
