In many commercial contracts, the contracting parties include an arbitration clause. Doing so allows for any disputes arising between the parties to be excluded from the jurisdiction of the ordinary courts and instead referred for arbitration. The advantages typically ascribed to such clauses are confidentiality of proceedings, procedural speediness and specialisation. However, the costs of arbitration can be higher in some cases than those of normal court proceedings. Arbitrators are usually appointed by the parties involved.
