Arbitration In Banking Disputes Arab Institute for Accountants & Legal

Course details

Banks and financial institutions traditionally have favoured litigation over arbitration as the means of resolving international disputes. The reasons often given include: (i) financial disputes typically involve straightforward payment claims and do not involve complex legal questions or fact finding, with the latter more suited for arbitration; (ii) arbitration does not provide for the possibility of default judgments or summary judgments, and as a result arbitration is not as efficient and cost effective as court proceedings; (iii) disputes about the tribunal’s jurisdiction may lead to unnecessary delays; (iv) arbitrators tend to render more equitable decisions than judges; (v) the flexibility of the arbitral process creates legal uncertainty; (vi) banks appreciate control of decisions by higher courts on appeal; (vii) arbitration can permit unnecessarily extensive document production (particularly compared with civil law courts); (viii) arbitration is problematic in multi-party disputes; (ix) arbitral confidentiality means that proceedings cause less embarrassment to the debtor; and (x) awards have limited precedential value.
