The LCIA is one of the world’s leading international institutions for commercial dispute resolution. The LCIA provides efficient, flexible and impartial administration of arbitration and other ADR proceedings, regardless of location, and under any system of law. The international nature of the LCIA’s services is reflected in the fact that, typically, over 80% of parties in pending LCIA cases are not of English nationality.
The LCIA has access to the most eminent and experienced arbitrators, mediators and experts from many jurisdictions, and with the widest range of expertise. The LCIA's dispute resolution services are available to all contracting parties, without any membership requirements.
In order to ensure cost-effective services, the LCIA’s administrative charges, and the fees charged by the tribunals it appoints, are not based on sums in issue. A registration fee is payable with the Request for Arbitration and, thereafter, hourly rates are applied by the arbitrators and by the LCIA.

New co-Chairs for the LCIA’s Young International Arbitration Group (YIAG)In May 2013, it was announced that Kate Davies, Amir Ghaffari, Andy Moody and Marie Stoyanov would be stepping down as co-Chairs of the group at the end of their term in September 2013.
The position of co-Chair is an exciting and challenging opportunity to organise and participate in the activities of YIAG.
The LCIA would like to extend its sincere thanks to Kate, Amir, Andy and Marie, who have been instrumental in supporting the aims and development of the group, which has grown to over 5000 members from more than 142 countries during their term in office.
The LCIA is delighted to announce that Ruth Byrne, James Freeman, Rémy Gerbay and Anna-Maria Tamminen have been appointed as the new co-Chairs and will continue to work with the LCIA to promote and develop the group over the next three years.
The handover will be at the YIAG symposium at Tylney Hall on Friday 20 September.
Important changes at the LCIA
The LCIA’s long-serving Director General, Adrian Winstanley, is to stand down from this post on 30 June 2014, to pursue a career as arbitrator and mediator, as which he is now free to accept appointments. He will continue after his retirement to provide services to the LCIA, as a consultant.
Adrian joined the LCIA as Registrar in 1997, combining this role with that of CEO and Director General in 2000, before relinquishing the Registrar’s position in 2008 at a time when the LCIA’s caseload was expanding exponentially, and the roles could no longer be combined.
During his term of office, the LCIA has moved premises twice to keep pace with the expansion of its business, and has established offices, independently and in joint ventures, in Dubai, India, Mauritius, and Seoul. Adrian was recognised for services to international arbitration in the Queen’s Birthday Honours this year, with the award of an OBE.
The search for the LCIA’s next Director General has begun.
