Commercial Disputes in Indonesia: Finding an Alternative Dispute Resolution Body covering Mediation and Arbitration in Indonesia

A commercial dispute is a dispute that commonly arises from a commercial contract. This can be between companies, individuals, a mix of both or even between an investor and a state. Keeping in mind that court litigation might be lengthy and disclosed to the public, the contractual party might prefer to settle the dispute by way of Mediation and Arbitration. For agreements, including agreements related to commercial matters (e.g., sale and purchase agreement, construction agreements, lease agreements), the contractual parties often insert an arbitration clause if they prefer arbitration to settle any dispute arising from the agreement.

Indonesia’s only International organization related to arbitration is Bali International Arbitration and Mediation Center (“BIAMC”). BIAMC offers Ad Hoc Arbitration and Mediation services, making BIAMC a full-service solution for all dispute settlement needs. Moreover, the arbitrators and mediators with BIAMC are widely recognized for their extensive experience in Alternative Dispute Resolution, which makes BIAMC the most preferable Mediation and Arbitration body.
