Arbitration is a private means of dispute resolution whereby the parties agree to be bound by the decision of an arbitrator of their choice whose decision is final and whose award has the legal force of a High Court judgment or order.

Areas where arbitration has proved especially effective include building and civil engineering contracts; shipping; imports; exports and international trade; foreign investment agreements; commodities trading; partnership disputes; insurance contracts; intellectual property agreements; and rent review in commercial leases. This list is not exhaustive, however, for almost any commercial dispute which can be resolved by litigation in court, can be resolved by arbitration, and there is a widespread increase in the use of arbitration generally.
