As "Commercial Transactions" become increasingly international , is a challenge to the parties involved in those contracts as they have to think about harmonization of domestic laws and the choice of law in commercial transactions including the proper scope to resolve conflicts in case they arise.
"Alternative Disputes Resolutions" are use today as a practice to resolve "International Business Transactions" as well as in other relations , as ways to solve disputes either with Mediation or Arbitration.
If a dispute between the parties cannot resolve it by mediation, they can submit it to arbitration to settle the dispute .
The arbitrator—a neutral third person— hears the evidence brought by both sides and makes a decision. is either selected directly by those involved in the dispute or is designated by an arbitration list .
Arbitration is a legal technique for the resolution of disputes outside the courts . An arbitrator’s, arbiter, arbitral tribunal , role is very different from that of a mediator , an arbitrator decides on and imposes a solution him- or herself. By whose decision -the "award" - they agree to be bound.
The arbitrator normally hears both sides at an informal hearing. You can be represented by a lawyer at the hearing, but it’s not required. The arbitrator acts as both judge and jury. After the hearing, he or she issues a decision called an “award.” The arbitrator follows the same legal rules a judge or jury would follow in deciding whether you or the other side has a valid legal claim and should be awarded money, but can usually hear more evidence than a court would allow.
Arbitration can be either binding or nonbinding. If arbitration is nonbinding, either person named in the award can take the matter to court . Binding arbitration is usually final and the winner can easily convert the award into a court judgment that can be enforced just like any other court judgment. In other words, a binding arbitration award is just as good as a judgment you could get from a court.
Mediation and arbitration are two methods for settling disputes without resorting to expensive lawsuits. These often lumped together under the term “alternative dispute resolution” or ADR. People often confuse the two, but they are in fact very different.
Mediation is never binding on the participants, whereas arbitration usually is binding and often takes the place of a court action.
No one can be forced into arbitration or mediation, you must agree to it. Business contracts today commonly include an "MED-ARB CLAUSE" Mediation -Arbitration provision. Many also require fist a mediation. This is primarily because of two factors: speed and cost.
Mediations process are usually much faster and than lawsuits in court. Most arbitrations and mediations are concluded in less than six months. Court litigation often takes years. Arbitration and mediation are usually far cheaper than a lawsuit.
