Arbitration has increasingly become a popular means of dispute resolution in the UAE and the surrounding regions as well. If a contract contains an arbitration agreement, any relevant dispute should be referred to arbitration. Arbitral proceedings do generally involve high costs owing to tribunal and administrative fees. Nonetheless, parties to arbitration can have more attractive advantages such as: confidential proceedings and the speed of the process; arbitrations can be conducted in English, or in any other language agreed by the parties and selecting the appropriate laws that will be applied, etc.
