We can assist in arbitration proceedings. Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution which allows the parties to obtain a fair resolution of any dispute by an impartial tribunal appointed by them. The parties also agree how their dispute is to be resolved (subject only to such safeguards as are necessary in the public interest).

The four fundamental features of arbitration are:

  1. An alternative to national courts and civil litigation;
  2. A private confidential mechanism for dispute resolution
  3. Selected and controlled by the parties,
  4. Final and binding determination of the parties’ rights and obligations (subject to appeal on very limited grounds).
