What Are the Benefits of International Arbitration?

A key advantage is its flexibility. Unlike national court systems, which involve complex procedural rules and legal machinations, the parties tailor the arbitration process to their specific needs and priorities. For example, the parties can choose the:

  • Place of arbitration
  • Number of arbitrators
  • Language to be used
  • Rules of procedure to be followed

Another benefit is that international arbitration is confidential. Unlike public court proceedings, arbitration hearings are held in private. This can be particularly important for businesses that must keep confidential and sensitive information from the public record. 

It also benefits individuals who wish to avoid the public scrutiny that comes with a court case. It is also quicker and more cost-effective as court cases often take years to resolve as litigation costs quickly mount. By contrast, this is typically completed within months at a significantly lower cost. 

One of the main advantages of international arbitration is the enforceability of arbitral awards. In many cases, the parties have entered into an agreement that includes a provision for enforcing an award. If one party fails to comply with the award, the other party can seek to have it enforced by the courts. This is particularly valuable for parties operating across multiple jurisdictions because it provides a dispute resolution method recognized and enforced in many countries.

In short, this is an attractive option for investor states, businesses, and individuals. It provides a flexible, confidential, and efficient process for resolving disputes, which can be particularly useful for those who operate across multiple jurisdictions. Ultimately, navigating the process takes the advice and counsel of a skilled international arbitration attorney.
