How arbitration works

Arbitration is a ‘private’ dispute resolution process by which the parties to a dispute submit their differences to the judgment or decision of an impartial arbitration tribunal appointed by mutual consent or statutory provision, the parties agreeing in advance to abide by and be legally bound by the decision or ‘award’ of the arbitrators. The parties must be given an opportunity of being heard, and of ’presenting their case’. The award of the tribunal is therefore based on the evidence and submissions made by the parties.

This private dispute resolution process operates outside the judicial processes of the state courts, and in most countries the award of an arbitral tribunal is enforceable in the state courts. In the case of international arbitration, for example where the parties are from different states, the arbitral award may be enforceable internationally under the New York Convention (the 1958 New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards): so an award made in one convention country may be enforceable in another convention country.

A number of members of Chambers and door tenants are qualified as arbitrators and have experience acting in domestic (English) and international arbitrations, both as arbitrators and as counsel.
