Arbitration Services

Our arbitration services are trusted by businesses and consumers to resolve a whole range of commercial and consumer disputes.  We have issued hundreds of awards and appointed more than 50 arbitrators since the business was formed in 2016.  Our different services are explained below and you can view our growing list of arbitrators here.

Hunt Arbitration

We have a set of pre-written ‘documents only’ arbitration rules and appoint arbitrators on a case by case basis from our knowledge of the sector and who is the most appropriate arbitrator for your dispute.  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.  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

Ad-hoc Appointments

We will appoint an arbitrator 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.

ArbEx

We know how hard it is to break into arbitration, and to hold your place at the table. With this in mind, we have developed ArbEx – providing qualified arbitrators with a pathway to success in this highly competitive field.

ArbEx is a CDP programme for qualified arbitrators.  It is not a training programme.  See here for further information.

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 100 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.
