At Pfeiffer Law Corp, we understand that navigating the IFTA arbitration landscape can be both confusing and time-consuming. Our experienced team will be there to walk you through each step, from the initial consultation to the conclusion of the action.
Here is a basic outline of the process. First, we will hold an initial consultation where we meet with you to analyze the facts of your case and clarify your specific needs so we are all on the same page moving forward. Second, we will prepare and file the proper Notice of Arbitration with IFTA then serve all necessary parties. Third, we will help you choose the appropriate arbitrator for your action. We have worked with many different IFTA arbitrators in the past, which allows our team to pinpoint the arbitrators best suited for your case. Fourth, we will ensure compliance with all hearing deadlines and formalities. Fifth, should the circumstances require it, we will effectively address any counter or third-party claims against you and assert cross claims as necessary. Finally, we will be by your side at the arbitration hearing so you get the outcome, and the award, that you deserve.
After the arbitrator has issued his or her arbitration award, we will file a Petition to Confirm Arbitration and Award with the Los Angeles County Supreme Court. When the judge rules on our Petition to Confirm, a judgment is entered against the adverse party.
Because the IFTA arbitration is so complex, it is important to have knowledgeable representatives on your side. Here is a partial list of Pfeiffer Law's awards collected in IFTA arbitration, demonstrating a proven track record of success in this specialized area of the law.
After judgment has been entered against the adverse party, the process of collecting payment begins. We will send a “Due Notice Letter” to the adverse party giving notice of our intent to request that IFTA bar them from the next American Film Market (AFM) if payment is not received. After obtaining proof of delivery of the Due Notice Letter we formally request that IFTA bar them from AFM. After ten days, if the defendant does not pay, IFTA may bar the defendant from attending AFM. The barring process may be repeated one more time, effectively barring the defendant from attending two AFMs.
To help walk you through the process, our skilled team of professionals has devised a series of flowcharts and extensive summaries to help you fully grasp the IFTA Arbitration process.
We hope that they prove fruitful to you understanding. Even so, if you have any questions or are seeking representation, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at (310) 451-5800.
