Abstract: Arbitration as a means of settling construction disputes is increasing. It can be particularly useful in international disputes, where parties often seek to avoid litigation in foreign courts. An expert witness in many construction disputes describes the advantages of arbitration over litigation, the rules and procedures usually followed in arbitrating cases, and such practical matters as how arbitrators are appointed and where to hold the proceedings. The services of the American Arbitration Association, the largest such organization in the world, are also described.
