International contracting can lead to a particular kind of dispute. Parties often get into difficulties because what one party considers normal practice can actually be very different in another jurisdiction. Often the only common consensus is that the parties want their dispute resolved as quickly as possible. International arbitration is usually the best method of resolving disputes on an international contract involving parties from different jurisdictions. It is the method of choice in certain industries such as infrastructure, energy, commodities and shipping; but nowadays parties prefer to have their commercial disputes resolved by arbitration instead of going through lengthy civil court trials.
