  • Vilnius Commercial Court of Arbitration

    The Chambers Association is one of the founders of the Vilnius Commercial Court of Arbitration (Gedimino Ave. 50, Vilnius). Arbitration provides individuals with an excellent opportunity to resolve disputes in a confidential, informal and mutually beneficial manner. Arbitration is a way of resolving a dispute where natural or legal persons, on the basis of their agreement, seek to settle a dispute between themselves and undertake not to apply to a court of a state, but to a third person or persons chosen by them, or as appointed by law. Arbitration decisions are recognized and can be enforced in more than 140 countries of the world. Unlike courts, arbitration is more flexible – parties can agree on the language and place, the number of arbitrators and the procedure for their appointment, and the law applied to the disputes. Arbitration, in accordance with the agreement of the parties to the dispute, may organize procedures for settling international and national commercial disputes by using alternative means of settling disputes (examination, conciliation, mediation, etc.).
