Arbitration Clause And Submission Agreement

II. The recommended arbitration agreement where the legal relationship with which it is concluded is not contractual in nature: however, for parties before an overburdened judicial system before the possibility of litigation, it is often in the interest of both parties to accept arbitration as soon as a dispute is ongoing in order to avoid lengthy legal proceedings, neither party cares. The possibility of arbitration depends exclusively on the will of the parties, as this method of dispute resolution is purely consensual. The will (or consent to arbitration) required is often, but not always, contained in the contract between the parties in the form of a compromise clause. «In a work contract, all it takes is a referral, so that in the event of a dispute between the owner and the contractor over the construction contract, it is resolved by the General Terms of Construction (FIDIC). This means that the parties have agreed to arbitration with respect to all disputes arising from the obligations set out in this contract, without the need to respond to the details of this condition, if the referral is sufficient… This was the case, for example, in Brazil, prior to the arbitration law of 23 September 1996. As the scientists pointed out, the old Brazilian practice required that «even if there was an arbitration agreement [i.e. a compromise clause], it was always necessary to enter into a bid agreement when the dispute broke out. If a party refuses to enter into a bid agreement, it could not be forced to do so. [2] International arbitration has many advantages for the settlement of cross-border disputes, particularly in the current global context. While the parties generally benefit from these benefits by inserting a pre-litigation compromise clause into their cross-border trade agreements, the parties can also access the existing litigation system through an often overlooked option – the bid agreement. This update explains why the parties should consider this option and provides advice on developing bid agreements.
