Arbitration

What is Arbitration?

Arbitration is often the contractual dispute resolution process for major international projects. It is also used for construction disputes in the UK, for disciplines not covered by the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 (HGCR).

Our Approach

ALA is experienced in arbitration proceedings and understands the need for specific, strict requirements. Drafting an effective arbitration provision that properly sets out the seat, law of contract and of the proceedings is of critical importance in governing the proceedings and ultimately enforcing the award.

We have experience leading formal international pre-arbitration hearings and have been able to achieve negotiated settlements and positive commercial outcomes for our clients.

We regularly work alongside large law firms, playing a key role in major international arbitrations. We often undertake specific works packages, provide strategic advice and commercial support. Our work is produced to the highest evidential and technical standards.

Some of our major commissions include an international wind-farm dispute in Europe and a complex dispute at a UK Biomass plant.

ALA Director, Byron Tyson, is a Member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Arbitration.
