Arbitration in Pakistan:
The Statute The law of arbitration in Pakistan is contained in the Arbitration Act, 1940 (a pre-partition enactment, which continues in force). Its main features are summarised as under: The Act provides for three classes of arbitration: –
(a) arbitration without court intervention (Chapter II, sections 3-19);
(b) arbitration where no suit is pending, (but through court) (Chapter III, section 20)
(c) arbitration in suits (through court) (Chapter IV, sections 21-25).
- The process is flexible;
- There are no issues as to jurisdiction;
- Arbitrators are neutral;
- Based on
- procedural corporate expertise, arbitrators can be appointed;
- Since the arbitration proceedings will not be conveyed, the parties should be able to avoid the adversative publicity which usually follows litigation, so they may keep it confidential;
Where a court judgment is commonly subject to rights of appeal to higher appeal courts, an arbitration award is normally final.
