Today, arbitration is one of the popular dispute resolution forums chosen by business actors on a local and international scale. As stated in Law No. 30 of 1999 concerning Arbitration and Alternative Dispute Resolution ("Arbitration Law"), arbitration is a method of settling civil disputes outside the general courts based on an arbitration agreement made in writing by the parties to the dispute. In line with its nature and characteristics that prioritize effectiveness in dispute resolution, the arbitration forum is widely chosen by business actors because it is considered effective from various aspects that prioritize the following matters: (1) Confidentiality, where the examination of arbitration cases will be carried out in a closed and limited manner only for the parties to the arbitration agreement, which means that the confidentiality of the parties to the dispute will be protected, so that it does not have a negative impact on the parties to the case, in terms of protection of trade secrets (trade secrets) and the reputation of the parties which is not covered by the media; (2) Party autonomy, which gives the parties to the dispute the freedom to agree to determine the arbitration procedure that is considered the most effective for the parties, such as the language used, the governing law, and the arbitrator they will choose according to the choice and expertise of the arbitrator; and (3) A final and binding award, which means that the arbitration award is final and binding, so that there are no appeal, cassation, or motion to reconsider, which makes the examination of arbitration cases faster and more effective which, on average, takes no more than 6 (six ) month.

Pembangunan infrastruktur di dalam masyarakat tidak lepas dari ketersediaan tanah dan kepemilikan tanah yang ada di suatu negara. Tanah yang dimiliki dan dikelola oleh seseorang tentu dijamin legalitasnya oleh negara, namun tak dapat terelakkan kemungkinan terjadi permasalahan di dalamnya. Menurut data dari Badan Pertanahan Nasional (“BPN”), kasus-kasus terkait pertanahan di Indonesia bertumpuk hingga ribuan kasus di mana persoalan biasanya bertumpu pada kasus-kasus sengketa hak waris, kasus monopoli tanah oleh korporasi, pengembangan kawasan industri properti yang menyebabkan penggusuran tanah pertanian- meski aturan mengenai batas kepemilikan tanah pertanian sudah diatur di dalam UU Agraria dan peraturan terkait lainnya. Misal untuk pemegang hak atas tanah pertanian bagi perorangan, dibatasi hingga 20 hektar di daerah tidak padat dan 6 hektar di daerah yang sangat padat.
