Arbitration Clause For Contracts

Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this contract, or any breach thereof, shall be settled by binding arbitration, and judgment upon the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant all appropriate relief, including but not limited to: compensatory, exemplary, declaritory or injunctive.

The arbitration shall be conducted before GAMS, or its successors, using a sole arbitrator (assigned by GAMS from the GAMS arbitrators panel) and, unless agreed in writing by the parties within 10 days of the filing of a demand for arbitration, be conducted in the city where the contract was first executed. The arbitrator may make an initial determination of the location of the arbitration, and unless another location is mutually agreed by the parties, in writing, said determination by the arbitrator shall become final and binding 3 days after the arbitrators ruling.

The arbitration shall be administered by GAMS, or its successors, pursuant to its current arbitration rules and procedures. In the arbitration the arbitrator shall not be bound by the rules of evidence or legal precedent. All decisions including those of law and fact are final and binding upon the parties. There shall be no discovery in the arbitration. Unless extended by the arbitrator, the arbitration shall commence no later than 3 months after the appointment of the arbitrator. Unless extended by the arbitrator the hearing shall not continue past 5 days. The arbitrator may grant provisional remedies, enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.

The arbitrator shall, in the Award, allocate all of the costs of the arbitration, including the fees of the arbitrator and the reasonable attorneys´┐Ż fees of the prevailing party, against the party who did not prevail. The prevailing party shall be the party who, in the sole discretion of the arbitrator, received the greater relief in the entire arbitration.

Each party irrevocably consents to service by first class mail for all process for matters arising from this agreement. Any judicial determination of substantive arbitrability shall be solely determined by the Superior Court in Orange County California. All matters of procedural arbitrability shall be decided by the arbitrator whose decision shall be final and binding.
