Who We Are
For some disputes there is simply no option but to settle them in court. However, there are just as many others which can be solved by simpler and less-expensive means that leave both parties feeling justice has been served.
One of these options is Arbitration. However, not all arbitration forums are created equal. One such example is the Miami Maritime Arbitration Council (MMAC).
The MMAC was established more than 15 years ago by the Marine Council, a non-profit marine trade association whose mission is to serve as the Guardian of the Marine Community. MMAC was created with the specific purpose of maintaining and administering a system for settlement – by arbitration or mediation – of maritime commercial disputes. Turning to the MMAC for help is not mandatory; the parties must request intervention and agree to operate under the rules of that organization
