New Brochure Gives Engaging Glimpse into ICC Dispute Resolution

4776_image002The International Chamber of Commerce published a brochure offering a concise introduction to its dispute resolution services. The booklet presents the ICC, its International Court of Arbitration® and International Centre for ADR, and related ICC products and activities aimed at facilitating the resolution of international commercial disputes.

This engaging, easy-to-read booklet distills the key features and advantages of ICC arbitration, mediation, expertise services and dispute boards. Readers will find a succinct diagram explaining the principal steps of the arbitration process, a page listing ten good reasons for choosing ICC dispute resolution and section explaining how the different services may interact with each other.

The brochure is published in both print and electronic formats. Conceived above all as a primer, the booklet contains links to individual ICC web pages for more information on the topics it covers. These URLs are active hypertext links in the PDF version of the brochure.

Andrea Carlevaris, secretary general of the ICC International Court of Arbitration® and Director of ICC Dispute Resolution Services, described the brochure as an ideal starting point for anyone wishing to have an overview of ICC’s activity and resources in the field of dispute resolution. “The publication combines a dynamic design with simple language to inform and orientate readers who are contemplating using ICC’s dispute resolution services,” he said.

Translations are planned and will be announced in due course. USCIB is ICC’s American affiliate.
