Any award pursuant to said arbitration shall be accompanied by a written opinion of the arbitrator setting forth the reason for the award. To all lawful extent, the arbitrator will have the authority to hear and grant motions and applications, including on an ex parte (that means one party presenting alone before the arbitrator) or expedited basis. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall be conclusive and binding upon the parties, and judgment upon the award may be entered, and enforcement may be sought in, any court of competent jurisdiction. The prevailing party in any dispute relating to this Agreement shall be entitled to recover associated costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees.
