Contractual Arbitration

To ensure that their disputes are resolved quickly, economically and privately, parties to commercial agreements frequently rely upon arbitration clauses. Depending upon the wording of the arbitration clause, arbitrators have broad jurisdiction to adjudicate certain disputes and award remedies. However, certain disputes may not be determined by an arbitrator. In such cases, the applicable legislation only provides for the dispute to be resolved by the court.
