Arbitration can allow parties to resolve the disputes as per their convenience.

Domestic arbitration is a dispute resolution mechanism which is often preferred by the parties from same jurisdictions who intend to avoid the recourse of court. In domestic arbitration, the parties involved are either nationals or habitual residents of the country. It is administered in a country where both parties belong to, however the seat of arbitration may vary as per the choice of parties.

In India, the governing law for domestic arbitration depends on whether the parties opt for institutional arbitration or ad hoc arbitration.
