ICC International Centre for ADR
While every dispute differs in one way or another, they each have one common aim: to be resolved in the most effective and appropriate way possible. That’s why the ICC International Centre for ADR offers a range of services that can be used separately, successively or even concurrently.
These services include mediation, expert appraisal and dispute boards. They also oversee work involving DOCDEX (Documentary Instruments Dispute Resolution Expertise).
The separation between the Court and Centre is intended to preserve the full confidentiality of mediation and arbitration proceedings—whether they are concurrent or not and if the parties do not wish the exchange of information. All our amicable dispute resolution solutions give parties a procedural framework for settling matters quickly, cordially and in the most cost-effective way possible.
With a staff of experienced international lawyers, the Centre not only handles the settlement of disputes but also provides support in contact drafting. Whatever service or combination of services is required; it is important to include the most relevant dispute resolution clause in your contract or treaty. We provide a variety of model clauses exactly for this purpose. However, parties are also able to draft their own as well. A properly drafted dispute resolution clause will help ensure that your preferences are respected when a dispute arises. Even if you do not include a clause in your contract, you can still agree on ICC later on.
