USCIB’s Arbitration Committee

USCIB’s Arbitration Committee consists of all corporate, law firm and organizational members of USCIB who are interested in learning about and becoming more involved in ICC’s dispute resolution services in the U.S.

The group meets in different parts of the U.S. and abroad at luncheons, roundtable discussions, ICC arbitration conferences and via video or telephone conferences.

Working with ICC Conferences, SICANA or ICC Arbitration North America, USCIB’s Arbitration Committee leaders help organize conferences, seminars and corporate roundtables to educate the public about the ICC’s different dispute resolution mechanisms.
