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.
