Arbitration

Arbitration services are ideally placed to assist with both international and domestic arbitrations. I have experience and knowledge of various institutional rules including the International Court of Arbitration (ICC), London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) and International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID).

We can undertake several types of Arbitration:

  • Voluntary

  • Mandatory

  • Institutional 

  • Ad-hoc

 

Each type of Arbitration is used in different circumstances, if you have any questions on which Arbitration is applicable to your dispute, message, email or call to discuss further.

What is Arbitration?

Arbitration is an increasingly popular choice to resolve high value disputes due to the speed and flexibility of the procedure compared to Court Litigation.

Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) to resolve disputes outside of the Courts.

 

The disputes can be determined by one or more Arbitrators and offers parties a more flexible, private, confidential and cost effective alternative to Court litigation.

How Does Arbitration Work?

Arbitration is an adversarial process where the disputing parties choose the Arbitrator (s) to hear their dispute and provide a final award.

In Arbitration, the claimant and respondents present their case before either a sole Arbitrator or panel of Arbitrators, depending on the legal complexity of the dispute. 

The Arbitrator (s) will review the evidence and pleadings presented before them and will make an award based on law.

 

The award can provide both financial damages and other legal remedies. Often awards have limited rights of appeal and recognised by the State Courts for enforcement.

Benefits of Using an Arbitrator Instead of Going to Court

Arbitration is a form of dispute resolution that allows parties to settle disagreements quicker than Court litigation. Parties are able to choose the governing law, seat, venue and who the Arbitrator or panel of Arbitrators will decide the award. 

 

Unlike Court Litigation, where parties have no opportunity to decide which Judge will hear their case, the parties in Arbitration can choose who will help them to resolve their dispute, and the award the Arbitrator makes is legally binding and recognised by State Courts for enforcement. 

 

Arbitrator selection is usually based on expertise, experience, and the criteria of the complexity of the issue in dispute.

 

The Arbitration procedure is confidential, and any award made is not published (unless by consent) unlike litigation cases through the public courts.

Domestic and international Arbitration is a complex and effective procedure for high value claims. We work with legal counsel and experts in other jurisdictions for complex legal matters. We take the time to understand your pressures and commercial issues, guiding you through the process. 

We are able to guide you through all the stages of the arbitral process with sensitivity and discretion.
