Applications to the English court relating to arbitration
A. Types of application to court
Most applications to court concerned with arbitration take the form of an “arbitration claim”. Specific rules of procedure, laid out in Part 62 of the Civil Procedure Rules (“CPR”) and the accompanying Practice Direction (“PD”), apply to such claims. Essentially, the Part 62 procedure contemplates a streamlined and (in some respects) truncated procedure aimed at swift determination of the issues. This is consonant with the policy in favour of speedy disposal of disputes.
