LCIA arbitration toolkit

Resources to help counsel prepare for and conduct an arbitration under the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) Arbitration Rules.

The London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) is one of the leading institutions for international arbitration. An LCIA arbitration is conducted under the auspices of the LCIA and is governed by the LCIA Arbitration Rules. The LCIA has its headquarters in London and operates under a three-tier structure, which comprises the company, the LCIA Court and the Secretariat. The LCIA Court is the final authority for the proper application of the LCIA Rules and its key functions include appointing tribunals, determining challenges to arbitrators and controlling costs.

    • appointing an arbitrator;

    • the award;

    • modifications to the award and enforcement.

The Toolkit also contains a useful list of links to LCIA resources.
