Arbitration is often chosen in the case of disputes in national and international business as a fast and cost-efficient alternative to litigation before the courts.

Many arbitration institutions are frequently used and have their own rules of arbitration, deciding in many areas, such as commercial disputes, M&A disputes (Post M&A), issues of intellectual property and copy light or in sports: ICC, DIS, LCIA, SCC, VIAC, Swiss Chambers, CAS or BAT, and there is also ad hoc arbitration proceedings.
