List of arbitral and ADR institutions by country , with links

The general preference in the international arena for arbitration in spite of litigation makes new developments
to take into account in planning and providing for dispute resolution. To select an arbitral institution may be an issue.

Preference among Arbitral Institutions

From the International Arbitration Survey from White & Case (https://choices.whitecase.com/news/newsdetail.aspx?news=3788):

“Which institutions do corporations prefer?

Respondents were asked to indicate their preferred institution and the reasons for their preference. According to the responses,6 the ICC is the most preferred institution (50%), followed by the LCIA (14%), AAA/ICDR (8%) and SIAC (5%).”

About the last 5 years, “the most commonly used institution over the past five years was the ICC (56%), followed by AAA/ICDR and LCIA (both at 10%).”

“What drives decisions about arbitration institutions?

The most important factor is neutrality/ ‘internationalism’ (66%), followed by reputation and recognition (56%). The arbitral rules of the institution and the law governing the substance of the dispute exert equal influence at 46%. The position of the governing law is perhaps higher than might be expected considering the finding in Section 1 that the influence between the law and the institution is not particularly strong.

Nevertheless, the closeness of the top ranked factors strongly suggests that there are a wide range of factors that influence the selection of an institution. Previous experience of the institution is also important (42%), as is the overall cost of the service (41%) and whether an institution has a global presence and/or the ability to administer arbitrations worldwide (39%). Also important is expertise in certain types of cases and free choice of arbitrators (i.e. no exclusive institutional list) (both at 38%). Reflecting the findings in Section 1, the seat exerts some influence at 35%. Least important factors are modes of payment, the similarity of the rules to the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules and methods of arbitrator remuneration.

How many arbitrators do corporations prefer?

73% of respondents have a general preference as to the number of arbitrators, of which 87% prefer three arbitrators. Respondents said that three arbitrators lead to greater neutrality, less risk of a poor decision and a more ‘balanced’ award. The desirability of being able to appoint one of the three arbitrators was another factor cited by respondents. A panel of three arbitrators also offers the opportunity to have a diversity of background and experience that may be useful in particular disputes, such as those with a great deal of technical evidence.”
