There are various avenues available when a dispute occurs in Thailand. If the contract specifies alternative dispute resolution, arbitration is available in Thailand. Whenever a dispute is referred to litigation, the subjects are always encouraged to pursue mediation prior to undertaking formal court proceedings.
At the start of a litigation, the judge will always ask the parties if they have attempted to resolve the dispute between themselves and the court will provide a formal mediation setting to discuss the matter.
Thailand also recognizes results from mediation so companies can skip the long drawn out process of traditional dispute resolution if they’re willing to abide by the outcomes of the mediation.
Thailand has 2 Arbitration centers, and is a member of UNCITRAL. Companies can also decide in the contract to refer all arbitration disputes to other arbitration centers, including Singapore International Arbitration Center (SIAC) or Hong Kong International Arbitration Center (HKIAC).
Litigation is expensive and time consuming. While it may be prevented with sound advice, in some cases it is unavoidable. When it becomes necessary, it is important to manage the process in the most effective and efficient way as possible.
