Parties to a contract in Thailand will often include an "Arbitration Clause" which requires any disputes to be resolved by a specific arbitration organization. The primary purpose for an arbitration clause is to avoid having to litigate in the slow moving Thailand civil court system. Opting for arbitration to resolve disputes will often save substantial time and costs for all parties involved.
