In the ever-evolving landscape of business and personal relationships, disputes are an inevitable reality. In such instances, the choice of a dispute resolution mechanism becomes critical in determining the efficiency and effectiveness of resolving conflicts. At Chandrawat & Partners, we specialise in International and domestic Arbitration and Mediation, offering our clients a pathway to swift and amicable resolution. In this blog post, we delve into the intricacies of these alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, exploring their benefits and shedding light on why they are increasingly becoming the preferred choice for resolving conflicts.


What is International Arbitration?

International Arbitration is a method of resolving disputes arising from international commercial agreements. It provides a neutral forum for parties from different jurisdictions to resolve conflicts outside the traditional court system. At Chandrawat & Partners, our team of experts excels in navigating the complexities of international disputes, offering our clients a globally recognised alternative to litigation.

Benefits of International Arbitration:

  1. Neutrality and Impartiality: Arbitrators are typically selected by the parties or a neutral institution, ensuring an unbiased approach to dispute resolution.
  2. Enforceability of Awards: Arbitration awards are generally easier to enforce across borders, thanks to international conventions such as the New York Convention.
  3. Confidentiality: Proceedings in international arbitration can be kept confidential, allowing parties to maintain the privacy of their disputes.
  4. Expert Decision-Makers: Parties have the flexibility to choose arbitrators with expertise in the subject matter of the dispute, ensuring a knowledgeable and informed decision.


Navigating Disputes in a Local Context:

While international arbitration deals with cross-border disputes, domestic arbitration focuses on conflicts within a single jurisdiction. At Chandrawat & Partners, our Domestic Arbitration practice caters to the unique legal landscape of our home jurisdiction, providing clients with a swift and cost-effective alternative to traditional litigation.

Advantages of Domestic Arbitration:

  1. Speed and Efficiency: Domestic arbitration often offers a quicker resolution compared to court proceedings, saving time and costs.
  2. Expertise in Local Laws: Our team’s deep understanding of local laws ensures that disputes are resolved in compliance with the applicable legal framework.
  3. Flexibility in Procedures: Parties have greater control over the arbitration process, allowing for flexibility in procedural matters.
  4. Reduced Formality: Arbitration proceedings can be less formal than court hearings, promoting a more collaborative and less adversarial environment.


What is Mediation?

Mediation is a collaborative process where a neutral third party, the mediator, facilitates discussions between disputing parties to help them reach a mutually acceptable resolution. At Chandrawat & Partners, we believe in the power of mediation to foster understanding and cooperation in resolving conflicts.

Key Benefits of Mediation:

  1. Preservation of Relationships: Mediation focuses on preserving relationships, making it an ideal choice for disputes where ongoing collaboration is essential.
  2. Cost-Effective: Mediation is often more cost-effective than litigation or arbitration, reducing both financial and time-related burdens.
  3. Informal and Voluntary: Parties participate voluntarily, and the process is more informal, empowering parties to actively engage in finding solutions.
  4. Customized Solutions: Mediation allows for creative and customised solutions that may not be available through traditional legal processes.
