Arbitrator Appointment

Home > Arbitrator Appointment

The selection of arbitrators represents the basic essence of arbitration as a private dispute resolution method. The power given to the parties regarding the selection of arbitrators has been regulated through different regulations, guidelines, legislation or other similar rules or statutes. Thus the fact that parties in an arbitration have the liberty, yet the burden, to choose the best adjudicator for their case may lead to difficult situations, blockages, and even insecurity in the arbitration proceedings, thus restraining the client from having a smooth arbitration proceeding.

The factors affecting the choice of arbitrators are: impartiality, independence, honourability, availability, but, in most situations, parties have to take into consideration much more in order to feel comfortable with the outcome and be confident in the judgement of the arbitral tribunal.

Arbitrators may be appointed in three ways:

  1. Directly by the disputing parties
  2. By the existing tribunal members
  3. By an external party (for example, the court or an individual or institution nominated by the parties)
