WHAT IS ARBITRATION AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Arbitration is a different way of legal dispute resolution where parties decide to forego the court process in favour of arbitration.  They submit their case to an arbitrator or arbitration panel who reviews the evidence, they listen to what the parties have to say and come to a decision after hearing all the evidence.  Arbitration clauses can be mandatory or voluntary and the arbitrator’s decision may be binding or nonbinding. The arbitrator’s decision is confidential unless a party finds it necessary to enforce the decision in court.

In South Africa arbitration is widely used and a popular method of dispute resolution. There has been a renewal of the South African Arbitration Law after the new International Arbitration Act in 2016.  South Africa is becoming a major regional arbitration centre.
