Arbitration is an invaluable method of alternative dispute resolution. The lawyers at Chand & Co. have extensive experience conducting commercial arbitrations for businesses and individuals. Chand & Co. can provide advice ranging from the drafting of arbitration clauses in commercial contracts to the enforcement and recognition of arbitral awards.
Selecting arbitration over the Courts to settle a dispute can have many advantages.
First, in arbitration the parties have superior control over the process used to settle a dispute. Parties to arbitration have a right to agree on rules, decide on the process and conduct proceedings in a manner consistent with the arbitration agreement.
Second, parties to arbitration often have the ability and option to keep disputes confidential, as opposed to the Courts where decisions and hearings are generally open to the public.
Third, decisions of an arbitrator and arbitral tribunal are final and binding and at least in Ontario there are limited rights of appeal either under the Arbitration Act or the International Commercial Arbitration Act.
Finally, arbitration is more often than not a more expeditious and cost effective solution to legal problems than the typical court process of litigation. Arbitrators and arbitral tribunals (both institutional and ad-hoc) may possess specialized experience that allow them to deal with the important legal matters head on.

AT THE REQUEST OF CLIENT
In early 2009, we needed a great litigation lawyer for a particularly difficult regulatory matter. Pradeep Chand meet with us only two days after our initial phone call. He took time to understand our situation and to explain his approach to litigation. Pradeep's guidance, counsel and style yielded the desired results. Pradeep has represented us on subsequent litigation matters, all with successful results for our establishment.
Pradeep has earned our complete confidence. We now rely on his guidance and direction on all liquor license and litigation matters. We look forward to working with him for many years to come.
