ICC Arbitration & ADR

Our rigorous approach, efficient processes and practical rules that cover every contractual issue have made us the leading arbitral institution. With teams across the globe, we stand ready to help you at any stage of your dispute.

What people are looking for:


ICC Arbitration assures the best quality of service. That’s because it is delivered by a trusted institution and a process that is recognised and respected as the benchmark for international dispute resolution. From straightforward sales contracts to intellectual property matters, joint ventures, share purchase arrangements or state-financed construction projects—whatever the case—we can assist in resolving disputes of all sizes.

Anyone can benefit from ICC Arbitration’s flexibility and effectiveness. The only requirement is that parties to a contract, treaty or separate arbitration agreement need to consent to use ICC Arbitration. This is handled through a contract or treaty before a dispute arises. However, it may happen after a dispute has taken place as well.

While maintaining strict neutrality, our Secretariat and other regional offices are available via telephone or email to answer questions.  Although we are happy to provide information, all Secretariats’ work is strictly confidential. Neither we nor any part of ICC will disclose information concerning a case except to those involved.

Unrivalled in experience and expertise, we are a leading international arbitration institution. We administer ICC arbitrations, overcome obstacles in proceedings and strive to ensure ICC awards are enforceable.

Like all ICC dispute resolution services, we base our arbitration solutions on rules that follow international best practice. We update these rules regularly and translate them into many languages to stay current with today’s business needs. We have made these rules short, adaptable and simple for use in virtually any type of procedure.
