Arbitration is the dispute resolution method of choice for international commercial and investment disputes.
Arbitration is a non court-based dispute resolution process. As such, the parties will have a high degree of control over the selection of their tribunal, which will generally consist of one or three arbitrators.
Arbitration will also usually be private and substantially confidential. The parties can choose the legal place, also known as the 'seat of the arbitration', and the law of the arbitration, as well as the language in which the process is conducted. Parties to cross-border contracts may choose a third, neutral country as the seat of their arbitration; they may consider London, Geneva or Paris in this context.
