When selecting a dispute resolution procedure, there are advantages in using Kings Arbitration Service over the Courts. One of the main advantages is that a hearing and decision will generally be given more quickly when choosing arbitration services. The informality of arbitration allows a range of representation. The parties involved have control over the selection of the arbitrator, unlike in court where they have no say over the judge or jury.
Arbitration can be more cost-effective – the costs are confined and by and large dependant on the size of the claim but in many cases are likely to compare favourably with Court proceedings.
Another advantage is that arbitration is a confidential way to solve a dispute as proceedings are generally non-public. So long as the award is met, the unsuccessful party does not get a court judgement registered against them.
