    For initiating or for continuing arbitration proceedings, is it mandatory to hire an advocate? Is the proceeding of arbitration legally complicated which a businessman cannot do on his own?

    It is not mandatory to engage a lawyer for conducting the arbitration proceedings before the arbitrator or arbitral tribunal. Arbitration proceedings are generally not too technically involved, except in cases where high stakes are involved and/or complicated issues are involved.

    While it is not necessary under law to hire an advocate for the arbitration proceeding, in certain complicated cases or high stakes cases, it may perhaps be advisable for your own benefit.
