IFTA Arbitration 

 

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 serve proper notice to IFTA and all necessary parties. It is very important to serve the right parties at the right time to ensure compliance with the IFTA notice rules. 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 to handle your case. Fourth, we will ensure compliance with all hearing deadlines and formalities. Fifth, should the circumstances require it, we will efficiently address any counter or third party claims against you and assert cross claims as necessary. Finally, we will be by your side at the actual arbitration so you get the outcome, and the award, that you deserve.

 

After the arbitration, 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.
