Arbitration is a contractual mechanism. When negotiating the arbitration provision, parties have the opportunity to tailor their disputes process to their needs, but must equally be aware that a bad provision will cause severe headaches when a dispute arises. Getting the clause wrong can, at worst, plunge the client into lengthy proceedings in an entirely different jurisdiction from the one it bargained for. James Arrandale and Georgina Milsom set out the key elements in drafting arbitration provisions, and explain how to optimise the procedure to meet the client's needs.
