Arbitration

Arbitration Lawyers in UAE

Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that can be used to resolve disputes outside of the court system. Disputes are decided by one or more persons (“Arbitrators”, “Arbitrators” or “Arbitration Tribunal”) who make an “Arbitration Award”. An arbitration decision or award is legally binding on both sides and enforceable in the courts unless all parties stipulate that the arbitration process and decision are non-binding.

Arbitration is a popular way to resolve disputes in the UAE and its surrounding regions. The growth of arbitration in the UAE is evident in the number of institutions in the UAE that offer commercial arbitration services. With rapid adjustments in the global economy, corporate disputes are now scaling beyond a specific territory, wherein most companies approach Arbitration Lawyers in UAE possessing a wide and relevant practical experience in UAE Arbitration Law along with requisite skill in legal representation before relevant arbitration institutes.

Why Arbitration

Arbitration has several advantages over litigation, including:

  • The proceedings are confidential (unless the parties agree otherwise).
  • Arbitrators with the requisite expertise can be appointed to deal with disputes involving technical subject matters.
  • Arbitrations can be conducted in English, or in any other language agreed to by the parties, whereas local court litigation is always in Arabic.
  • Oral evidence is permitted in arbitration, whereas only written submissions are generally permitted in the courts.
  • There are limited avenues for appealing arbitral awards and the merits of a decision cannot be challenged.
