Why Arbitrate? 17 years later.
Why Arbitrate?: Ontario’s Recent Experience with Commercial Arbitration by Randy A. Pepper is one of the best articles on commercial litigation.
The article appeared in the winter 1998 edition of the Osgoode Hall Law Journal. In 1998, Mr. Pepper wrote about the advantages of arbitration in light of the Arbitration Act, 1991 and the International Commercial Arbitration Act. Mr. Pepper comments on what a great venue Ontario is for commercial arbitration in light of these acts. Mr. Pepper suggests that a lack of awareness regarding arbitration may be one of the biggest roadblocks to more arbitration.
17 years later, in 2015, given all of the advantages of arbitration versus Court, more awareness and more experience with arbitration will continue to drive explosive growth in arbitration.
