The DIFC-LCIA is one of the world’s fastest growing institutions and the leading institution for commercial dispute resolution in the Middle East and Africa. We provide efficient, flexible and impartial administration of arbitration and other ADR proceedings, regardless of location, and under any system of law.
We have access to the most eminent and experienced arbitrators, mediators and experts from many jurisdictions, and with the widest range of expertise. Our services are available to all contracting parties, without any membership requirements.
In order to ensure cost-effective services, our administrative charges, and the fees charged by the tribunals that the LCIA Court appoint, are not based on sums in issue. A registration fee is payable with the Request for Arbitration and, thereafter, hourly rates are applied by the arbitrators and by the Secretariat.
