Dispute Appointment Services (DAS)
DAS are a pivotal part of CIArb, providing quick, confidential and cost effective methods of settlement or resolution of international disputes.
We offer a complete range of ADR methods including arbitration, adjudication, mediation and independent expert determination and can deal with many types of disputes in diverse areas.
The service is made up of highly trained and experienced ADR practitioners (Presidential Panels) selected from our membership that can deal with both commercial and civil disputes.
Members of the Presidential Panels of Chartered Arbitrators, Accredited Mediators and Accredited Construction Adjudicators must have demonstrated to the Institute they have a high level of knowledge, skill and experience in their discipline; they have undertaken an appropriate programme of continuous training and personal professional development and that they are committed to high ethical and professional standards.
If you have a contract clause that nominates CIArb's President to appoint (as appropriate) an arbitrator, mediator, adjudicator or independent expert/determinator, or both parties agree to resolve a dispute through ADR please choose the appropriate link below:
What will it cost?
An appointment fee is payable upon application. An administrative fee is also charged to appoint the appropriate specialist. Practitioners usually charge an hourly rate but their fees will be set out prior to the process starting.
