Parties often elect not to use the Courts to resolve their disputes since they are not always the most appropriate platforms to meet their needs. We understand that in many large scale international transactions the commercial realities encourage arbitral tribunals to be used. They can often provide a swift, cost effective and conclusive resolution to disputes.
