Arbitration and mediation

Arbitration and Mediation

Arbitration, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) model, is a method for resolving disputes outside of judicial courts. The dispute will be decided by one or more persons (“the arbitrators” or “the arbitrators” or the “arbitration panel”), who will issue the “arbitration award”. The arbitration decision or award is legally binding on both sides and enforceable in the courts, unless all parties state that the arbitration process and the decision are non-binding.

Article 173 of the Procedure Code gives the parties the power to submit their dispute to any arbitration procedure, provided the contracting parties agree to it in writing. If the parties fail to express in their contract their choice of any other arbitration system, the Judicial Arbitration Law will be applied by default and the contracting parties will be subject to the jurisdiction of the Arbitration Board of the Court of Appeal

Mediation is an organized and interactive process where a neutral third party helps the disputing parties in resolving the dispute through the use of Specialist communication and negotiation techniques. All participants in mediation are encouraged to actively participate in the process. Mediation is a "central" process in that it focuses primarily on the needs, rights and interests of the parties. The mediator uses a variety of techniques to steer the process in a constructive direction and to help the parties find the perfect solution
