Parties will need to decide which court is right for them when it comes to selecting the Competent Court. A number of factors will be relevant, most importantly, the particular nature of the contract and the type of disputes which may arise.
The Court comprises a panel of expert, arbitration-friendly judges from a range of civil and common law jurisdictions.
In addition, the Court houses a state-of-the-art courtroom containing some of the most sophisticated courtroom technology in use today. Its ability to operate virtually is one of its key characteristics, providing access to justice without the need for physical attendance at hearings and trials.
The Court is serviced by a Registry, headed by the Registrar, which is responsible for the case management of the cases that come before the Court. The Registrar and his team of expert case managers and support staff are available to assist Court-users who have queries in relation to filing an application, or who are seeking assistance as to the practices and procedures to be adopted before the Court.
