Ad hoc Arbitration Law and Legal Definition

Ad hoc Arbitration is a proceeding that is not administered by others and requires parties to make their own arrangements for selection of arbitrators. The parties are under discretion to choose designation of rules, applicable law, procedures and administrative support. Proceedings under ad hoc arbitration are more flexible, cheaper and faster than an administered proceeding. The absence of administrative fees alone makes ad hoc arbitration a popular choice.[ CITY OF PONTIAC v. MICHIGAN ASS'N OF POLICE & PONTIAC POLICE OFFICERS ASS'N, 2005 Mich. App. LEXIS 486 (Mich. Ct. App. Feb. 22, 2005)]
