What is Arbitration?

Arbitration is a dispute resolution process which can have many advantages over litigation or other dispute resolution methods in appropriate cases. The arbitrator is typically chosen by the parties or nominated by an independent third party nominating body. Arbitrators will usually have specialist knowledge of the matter/s in dispute. The parties can decide on the location and timing of the hearing to facilitate the parties and any witnesses. The process is often less formal than court. The arbitral award is binding, enforceable and cannot be appealed. Expedition results in cost savings. Arbitral awards are private and do not become binding precedents.
