Arbitration – Administered Overview

A Flexible Process

ADR Chambers works with lawyers to design a cost-effective and time-sensitive arbitration process that works and reflects the complexity of the issues and the amount in dispute.

Administered Arbitration

The ADR Chambers Arbitration Rules set out a clear process for the conduct of arbitration. An ADR Chambers Registrar helps parties select the arbitrator(s), finalize the Agreement to Arbitrate and Terms of Appointment, determine the rules and procedures for the arbitration, and schedule the pre-arbitration conferences. The Registrar is a lawyer.

Ad hoc Arbitration

Where the parties do not agree that the ADR Chambers Arbitration Rules apply, the services of a Registrar, who is a lawyer, are nonetheless available to help the parties select the arbitrator(s), finalize the Agreement to Arbitrate and Terms of Appointment, and schedule the pre-arbitration conferences.

Video Conference

ADR Chambers offers clients access to its simple audio or video conference system to conduct hearings and to present witnesses. There are no additional fees to use the system. Parties need not be tech savvy to use the system; they just require a computer, smartphone or tablet and a web camera. Our Technical Coordinators provide clients with easy-to-follow instructions and are available prior to and during arbitrations.
