A: As a general matter for any forum, it's difficult to say whether something would be a win. One of the advantages with arbitration is the loosening of rules of evidence and civil procedure applied in more rigid forums, offering parties the possibility of resolving disputes in a more streamlined and economical manner. Good luck
