The advantages and unique aspects of sports arbitration
Perhaps the main differentiating feature of sports arbitration is its speed. For the resolution of a sports dispute to be effective, it generally must be concluded before a particular competition takes place.
Parties will often be afforded short time limits to file submissions on procedural issues limits to file submissions leaves very little time for research during the arbitration.
Consistency and transparency
One of the most interesting aspects of sports arbitration service in Panama is that awards issued by an arbitral tribunal tend to be regarded as an authoritative precedent by subsequent arbitral tribunals from the same sports arbitration institution.
