A settlement has become a major part of the Indian legal system, in furtherance of which, over the past few decades Alternative Dispute Resolution and the rise in awareness have branched out from corporate matters to several civil law matters as well. The ADR mechanisms are not limited to arbitration but also include mediation, conciliation, negotiation, and Lok Adalat. Given the caseload with the judiciary, ADR is now the go-to resolution method for several companies.

King Stubb and Kasiva team has successfully assisted a great number of clients in arbitral proceedings under the Arbitration & Conciliation Act, 1996, in National and International cases seated in India. A few of the main areas of assistance companies require our assistance are:

  1. Drafting the Arbitration Clause in the contracts and ensuring proper jurisdiction clause

FAQs

In absence of an arbitration agreement or an arbitration clause, the court may not be able to refer the parties to arbitration unless a joint memo, joint affidavit, or a written application is submitted by the parties consenting to arbitration for dispute resolution.

A dispute clause is essential in any agreement, and an arbitration clause becomes important for companies and entities to incorporate in an agreement, as disputes may arise during the course. An arbitration clause must state the governing arbitration laws, along with parties deciding on the number of arbitrators (Usually, there is one or two). The clause must also have the process by which the arbitrators would be chosen, the seat of arbitration, and the language in which the arbitration would take place. In most cases, English is used.

When a party directly approaches the court despite an arbitration clause present in the agreement, the court will refuse to accept the jurisdiction and redirect the party to follow the arbitration clause, unless the court finds the arbitration clause incompetent or invalid

One party cannot on its own withdraw from arbitration, as the parties have consented to disputes being resolved by arbitration in the first place. One cannot unilaterally withdraw unless both the parties mutually decide on rescinding the arbitration clause.
