Arbitration lawsuits and disputes

The Local Law entitles parties to decide, in case eventual disputes arise between them, instead of going in Bulgarian civil court, to bring the lawsuit before the private Bulgarian arbitration courts. Arbitration lawsuits are another option for settling disputes that arise between them in relations to a breach of contracts.

In practice, since the arbitration is a one-instance procedure, it is often chosen by banks and creditors, to help them reach quickly issuing a payment warrant against the debtor.

In theory, the origin of the arbitration procedure is settling disputes between traders. However, it is used mostly in relation to lawsuits initiated by traders against consumers who have signed contracts with Common Terms and Conditions. The fact that arbitration courts are not regulated by any governmental organizations, the right given to any graduated in law person to become arbiter or to form arbitration court, as well the fact that there are no requirements towards arbiters, especially in spite of experience and qualification, may create many danger milestones in the arbitration lawsuits.
