Arbitration and Mediation
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is an important part of the Thai legal system. Instead of litigation, an increasing number of local and international disputes are now being settled through mediation and arbitration.
Convenience and speed are two of the major advantages of the arbitration process. The process can be adapted to suit the requirements of the parties involved. In Thailand, confidentiality is a significant benefit of this form of ADR, as all information revealed in the proceedings is kept private.
In this process the parties agree to have their dispute settled by an arbiter or arbitrator, rather than taking the case to the court system in Thailand. Once the parties have agreed to this method of dispute resolution they are legally bound by the decision.
