CMS Cameron McKenna’s Guy Pendell and Lindy Patterson QC assess industry sectory arbitration and the role of the specialist institution

Arbitration is available to resolve almost any dispute between parties capable of giving legal consent. Arbitration is available for religious groups through Beth Din (for the Jewish community) and the Muslim Arbitration Tribunal (providing arbitration in accordance with Islamic Sacred Law). Meanwhile, disputes between the NHS and service providers, salary disputes for US National Hockey League players and disputes over sharemilking in New Zealand’s dairy regions can all be determined by specialist arbitration procedures.
