Do you know how to draft an arbitration clause?
Do you know how to strategize your prayer for interim measures to protect your interests?
Do you know how to use cost-effective methods and procedures for parties?
With the increasing costs of litigation and time taken for resolution of disputes, there is a trend of clients and lawyers alike, leaning towards arbitration. The idea is simple. The clients want faster dispute resolution with minimal costs. The lawyers too, want to provide the best possible outcome for their clients.
Recently, one of my earlier clients wanted me to draft a contract to protect their interests. I obliged and added a carefully worded arbitration clause. The clients called me back saying they wanted to know the significance of the said provision. I explained to them the necessity of having the provision in the contract and not needing it, then needing it and not having it. The need for an arbitration clause in a contract is paramount. Usually the parties do not want to go to the courts and drain all their money fighting for years without a verdict. But contractual disputes are not going to be resolved on their own. So for them the time efficient alternative is arbitration.
The procedure is clearly laid down in the Arbitration and Conciliation Act. However, the procedure and the methods are complicated. Many parties fail to realise the full potential of arbitration proceedings and end up in courts. That defeats the whole purpose of arbitration. You not only need to know the provisions of the law, you must be able to apply the same effectively for your client’s interests.
Many a lawyers are skilled in litigation and have clients coming up to them for arbitration, but it is beyond their expertise. How do they fill the gap and aid their clients?
