Arbitration

Arbitration serves as a form of alternative dispute resolution outside of the courts to obtain a decision that will legally bind the parties. Using this process the parties to the dispute choose an independent expert known as an arbitrator to act as a judge. The arbitrator is a qualified professional with a strong legal and technical background on the matter.   Arbitration is commonly used for larger commercial disputes, building and construction contracts and employment matters.

You can find a Queensland Law Society (QLS) Approved Arbitrator quickly by using the Find an arbitrator search tool on this website or by contacting the Dispute Management Centre at dmc@qls.com.au or 07 3842 5904.

Our arbitrators are highly qualified with many years of legal and commercial experience.
