Arbitration-300x199The experience within the firm is of domestic arbitration which often has followed a set of rules and procedures, established by for example the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, but as with statutory adjudication has also involved adherence with the Arbitration Act 1996.

In summary the crucial aspects to consider before commencing a domestic arbitration is the comparison of other procedures, the Arbitration Act 1996, powers and jurisdiction of the Arbitrator, statement of case, content of preliminary meetings, costs and interest, procedure at the hearing and what are the essentials to achieve in the Award.

We are able to also apply a similar domestic arbitration process to an international arbitration, considering carefully the different aspects in laws and rules, for example the UNCITRAL Model Law and also the obvious practical matters of the powers of the tribunal, scheduling proceedings, hearings and enforcement.
