Domestic arbitration

Many UK commercial and property contracts contain an arbitration clause, providing a confidential way of resolving disputes by an independent third party acting as a private judge. Even where there is no arbitration clause, parties may agree that it is preferable to go to arbitration rather than to court. Domestic arbitrations are governed by the Arbitration Act 1996, which gives the parties much scope to shape the process in a way which will best address the issues between them.

Our barristers appear in court in matters relating to arbitration proceedings, for example on applications to stay court proceedings pending an arbitration or to appeal or challenge awards.
