Arbitration Proceedings

Professional arbitral tribunal instead of recourse to ordinary courts

In an arbitration proceeding, professional arbitrators appointed by the parties pass awards with the effect of a court judgment. This form of out-of-court settlement is becoming increasingly popular since it is not public, relieves the official courts and provides for a specialisation and professional competence of the arbitrators. The formal arbitration proceeding is regulated in Sections 1025 to 1066 Code of Civil Procedure (ZPO) (so-called ad-hoc arbitration). In construction matters, however, the parties prefer to agree on the construction-specific rules of arbitration issued by various institutions. The jurisdiction of an ordinary court is excluded in arbitration clauses.
