A Practitioner’s Guide to Commercial Arbitration

Overview

Arbitration can be a highly effective alternative commercial dispute resolution process outside of court. Indeed, arbitration is and has historically been a widely used method for resolving commercial conflicts arising out of domestic and international corporate and commercial transactions. It has tremendous potential to resolve disputes with confidentiality, economy, efficiency, finality, durability, neutral expertise, impartiality, fairness, and more party-sensitive and satisfactory outcomes than traditional litigation.

This book is a timely contribution to the works and world of commercial arbitration: provincially, nationally, and internationally. Written by leading practitioners from different perspectives, it is intended to be a practical, handy, and valuable guide for commercial arbitration practitioners. The book will be particularly valuable for new and experienced practitioners of commercial arbitration, corporate counsel, judges, government and industry professionals, educators, students, and members of the public.

This book is dedicated to The Honourable Coulter A Osborne, QC, a renowned Canadian arbitrator and former Associate Chief Justice of Ontario, in whom wisdom and prudential judgment, learning and competence, sophistication and high ethical standards are combined.
