Expedited Arbitration Rules

Sometimes an arbitration clause provides for expedited arbitration proceedings, with time limits by stated duration for claims submissions (pleadings), discovery of documents (by request) and an early arbitration hearing date and award publication.

Agreed Expedited Arbitration | Simplified Arbitration

On other occasions the arbitration clause does not provide expressly for an expedited arbitration procedure, but neither does it prohibit that. If the parties agree, then an expedited arbitration procedure for the arbitration can be directed by the arbitrator.

An expedited arbitration procedure will usually be agreed at the preliminary, or first, meeting and result in a procedural order covering the entire duration of the expedited arbitration from exchange of written submissions (pleadings) up to the date of the hearing and publication of the award.

Some Reasons for Fast Track Expedited Arbitration

There are lots of reasons the parties may wish to expedite the arbitration process, including (i) cost; (ii) urgent need for an award, where for instance, performance of a long term contract is still contemplated by the parties; (iii) urgency of enforcement of an award; (iv) knock-on consequences in other contracts in a chain of contracts, or supply or delivery contracts.
