Recommended Arbitration Clauses

Future disputes

Parties to an international contract who wish to have any disputes referred to arbitration under the LCIA rules are recommended to insert in the contract an arbitration clause in the following form;

"Any dispute arising out of or in connection with this contract, including any question regarding its existence, validity or termination, shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration under the Rules of the London Court of International Arbitration, which Rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this clause."

Parties are also reminded that difficulties and expenses may be avoided if they expressly specify the law governing their contract. The parties may if they wish also specify the number of arbitrators, and the place and language of the arbitration. The following provisions may be suitable.

"The governing law of this contract shall be the substantive law of ..."

"The tribunal shall consist of ... (a sole or three) arbitrator(s)."

In the case of a three-member tribunal, the following words may be added:

"... two of them shall be nominated by the respective parties"

"The place  2  of the arbitration shall be ... (city)"

"The language of the arbitration shall be ..."


 2. Note: the Tribunal may hold hearings or meetings anywhere convenient providing the Award is made at the place of arbitration.
