How to Draft an Arbitration Agreement?

A good arbitration agreement is one which minimizes complications when a dispute arise. However, many a times people neglect to pay attention while drafting an arbitration agreement.

Before finalizing an arbitration agreement, the terms should be thoroughly discussed and negotiated to avoid any misunderstanding at a later stage. Arbitration lawyers from all applicable jurisdictions must be consulted before finalizing any arbitration agreement..

A bad Arbitration Agreement could result in double jeopardy: arbitration as well as litigation arising out of arbitration. Therefore, care should be taken to draft an enforceable arbitration agreement. Lawyers from all applicable jurisdictions should review the arbitration agreement before its executed

Before signing an Arbitration Agreement the following must be properly addressed:

  • Applicable law to arbitration

  • Location of Arbitration

  • Number of Arbitrators

  • Language of Arbitration

  • Discovery procedure

  • Limitation to arbitration powers

  • Interim measures/Provisional Remedies

  • Privacy

  • Rules Applicable

  • Appeal & Enforcement

  • Be aware of local peculiarities   [For example, the Vermont Arbitration Act contains a significant "trap door" through which parties may fall if they are not careful. It provides that an agreement to arbitrate is not enforceable, unless the parties sign a separate "Acknowledgement of Arbitration" which contains language prescribed in the statute. See 12 Vt. Stat. Ann. 5652 (Supp. 1996). Also, the Vermont Arbitration Act may not apply, even if the parties attempt to select it. The Vermont Act states that it applies to all arbitration agreements, "to the extent not inconsistent with the laws of the United States." 12 Vt. Stat. Ann. 5653(a) (Supp. 1996). Even if parties intend to select the Vermont Act, it may not apply if the arbitration agreement is in interstate commerce and governed instead by the federal arbitration act. Threlkeld & Co. v. Metallgesellschaft, 923 F.2d 245 (2d Cir. 1991), cert. den'd 112 U.S. 17 (1991)]

  • Survival after Termination of the main agreement.

The arbitration agreement should be modified as applicable under different circumstances. One brush should not paint all the painting.
