We are one of the largest arbitration service providers in Europe and are trusted by businesses and consumers to resolve a whole range of commercial and consumer disputes. We have issued more than 1000 awards since 2016.
Using our ‘documents only’ arbitration rules we appoint arbitrators on an 'ad hoc' or case by case basis These rules are based initially on a documents only process with no additional costs for room hire, travel, refreshments, equipment etc. For more complex cases the Rules allow for hearings, which until further notice can only be held online. Costs are on a sliding scale as follows:
Disputes up to £75,000 cost £960 plus VAT per party
Disputes between £75,001 and £250,000 cost £1,600 plus VAT per party
Disputes between £250,001 and £750,000 cost £2,195 plus VAT per party
For disputes in excess of £750,000 contact us direct for a quote
We appoint arbitrators on an ad-hoc basis as required by parties (joint or unilateral applications). Our Ad-Hoc Appointments Services costs £150 plus VAT.
Arbitrator Recommendation Service
For parties who wish to appoint their own arbitrator but do not know who to appoint, we can recommend up to three arbitrators from our Panel for just £75 plus VAT. The parties are then free to approach any or all of the recommended arbitrators direct or if they still can't agree apply to us for an Ad-Hoc appointment.
CAPS - The Confidential Award Proofing Service
We proof hundreds of awards each year before they are published to parties and our 'lead proofer' has being proofing domestic and international awards for nearly 20 years. Already this year we have proofed more than 200 awards. The Confidential Award Proofing Service costs from £100 plus VAT per award (for awards of up to 20 pages - for larger awards please add £3 plus VAT per page). We read it, we identify typographical errors, formatting errors and sections within the award which are difficult to understand. We do not provide legal advice or comment on the content of the award itself. Service also applies to adjudicator decisions. English language only.
We also provide arbitration schemes for trade bodies and private organisations, including (but not limited to):
ABTA, The Travel Association (see www.travelarbitration.co.uk)
The Business Banking Exchange (BBX)
