International Litigation & Advocacy

International arbitration rules are provided by different international arbitration institutions.

Some of the most popular ones are:


  • International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) – the International Court of Arbitration is a branch of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and is known for resolving international commercial and business disputes, administering more than half of all arbitration disputes worldwide. Although called a Court it does not make formal judgments on disputed matters but supervises arbitration proceedings
  • United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) – was established by the United Nations General Assembly and is the core legal body of the UN system in the field of international trade law. Some of the areas of commercial law it covers include dispute resolution, international contract practices, transport, insolvency, electronic commerce, international payments, secured transactions, procurement and sale of goods.
  • London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) – provides efficient, flexible and impartial administration of arbitration and other ADR proceedings, regardless of location, and under any system of law. Over 80% of parties in pending LCIA cases are not of English nationality.
  • International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) – is the international branch of the American Arbitration Association (AAA), providing international arbitration and dispute resolution services. It has established cooperative agreements with arbitration institutions worldwide, enabling arbitration cases to be filed and heard nearly anywhere in the world.
