International arbitration: Which institution?

International arbitration which institution

    The majority of international arbitration users favour institutional rather than ad hoc arbitration. However, when deciding which institution to select, there are several to choose from, but little guidance to assist in the selection process.

    • the differences between institutional and ad hoc arbitration, and why institutional arbitration is favoured;
    • the key factors parties should consider when choosing an arbitral institution; and
    • a comparison of the rules, style, and perceived advantages and disadvantages of the leading arbitral institutions.
