Arbitration and Mediation

Arbitration and Mediation

By means of Decree Law No. 5 of July 8, 1999, in Panama the subjects of arbitration, conciliation and mediation are regulated. Arbitration institutions can be established provided they are authorized by the Ministry of Government and Justice. As a commercial and financial center, commercial arbitrations, national and international, can be offered.

There are specialized centers to learn about the petitions of arbitrations institutionalized in law or equity, national and international. Procedures are simple, easy to understand and apply and there is no procedural requirement. The award is considered “res judicata” and enforceable. Conciliation is also considered a method of peaceful solution of conflicts, whereby the parties consider the solution of their own conflicts with the intervention of a facilitator named Conciliator, being duly qualified.

The Mediation as an alternate method for the solution of conflicts is an adversarial procedure, its objective being reaching and facilitating the communication between the parties by the intervention of a competent third party named Mediator, in order to reach an agreement from them to conclude the conflict or controversy. The mediation may be public or private and may be institutional or independent, and matters subject to transaction, cancellation and negotiation and others regulated can be submitted to mediation. These matters create a new professional scope in Panama which allows national as well as international companies to reach a peaceful understanding between the parties in controversy at a minor legal cost.
