Pre-action Protocols ...

The pre-action protocols require parties to consider arbitration:

Litigation should be a last resort. As part of this Protocol, the parties should consider whether negotiation or some other form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) might enable them to resolve their dispute without commencing proceedings. ... options for resolving disputes without commencing proceedings are: ...

(c) arbitration, a third party deciding the dispute; and (d) early neutral evaluation, a third party giving an informed opinion on the dispute.”
