International arbitration clauses toolkit

A collection of international and UK and US-specific resources designed to assist parties and their lawyers in drafting effective arbitration clauses.

This toolkit contains international as well as UK and US-specific resources designed to assist parties and their lawyers in drafting effective arbitration clauses, including more complex hybrid clauses.

Most arbitration agreements are concluded as part of a contract, before any dispute has arisen. Arbitration clauses are usually one of the last contractual terms to be finalised, and parties may tend to rush through them, or make ill-thought out concessions, rather than risk losing the deal. However, badly-drafted arbitration clauses can give rise to expensive and time-consuming satellite disputes, may jeopardise the winning party's chance of enforcing an award, and can increase the overall costs of dispute resolution.
