Arbitration Survey ReportThe Inaugural Aotearoa New Zealand Arbitration Survey 2022
Inaugural New Zealand Arbitration Survey Report is Launched
• Report lifts lid on trends within this confidential method of dispute resolution
• Findings indicate that arbitration is more often used and entrenched than may be apparent to the legal community
• Average resolution times found to be significantly shorter than Court
The confidential nature of arbitration as an alternative dispute resolution method has made it inherently difficult to know how often it is used in New Zealand, until now.
Leading arbitrators Royden Hindle and Dr Anna Kirk, in collaboration with the New Zealand Dispute Resolution Centre, have researched and compiled the Inaugural New Zealand Arbitration Survey.
The Survey Report requested information about arbitrations where the appointment of the tribunal took place between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2021.
