Welcome to Just Answer, I am a practicing solicitor in England and Wales and I will be dealing with your case today.
Kindly note, I am not available for phone calls at the moment, however I can easily assist you via this online chat.
Please copy-paste the relevant clause here.
Kindly copy-paste your arbitration clause here, so that I can advise you accordingly.
Thank you. I will go through it and will be with you shortly.
"Any dispute arising out of or in connection with this contract, shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration in accordance with the Arbitration Act 1996. it shall be referred, upon written notice (a ‘Dispute Notice’) given by one party or parties to the other party or parties. The parties shall mutually appoint an arbitrator who shall be the sole arbitrator. The arbitration shall be conducted by the sole arbitrator , in accordance with the rules for conduct of arbitration proceedings in effect at the time of the arbitration. The arbitration shall be conducted through Audio Visual means. The proceedings shall be undertaken in English Language The arbitration award shall be final and binding on all the parties.”
If the jurisdiction is of England and wales, then you can either opt for London court of international arbitration for your arbitration.
Or keep it as it is. It is really up to the parties.
If you need further assistance, please let me know.
Thank you and all the best.
No, they are not in conflict.
Arbitration and court jurisdiction are two different clauses, and should not need to be confused or aligned with each other. So, you do not have to change the jurisdiction clause here.
My pleasure, thanks again.
