Facilitation of Settlement in International Arbitration

FICM is at the forefront of developments in the arbitration world, working with leading practitioners, lawyers and clients to formulate new ideas and improve the quality of the arbitration service that clients receive.

The FICM Rules on the Facilitation of Settlement in International Arbitration sets out a number of measures that can be used to try and most effectively resolve disputes without the need for a full arbitration. These Rules aim to assist international cases by establishing a safe transnational standard in settlement initiatives.

These measures include the provision for a ‘mediation window’ during the arbitration and can be implemented by agreement or through inclusion in a contract clause.

FICM Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures

FICM has taken an industry-leading role to ensure arbitration remains an attractive alternative to litigation. In order to save clients time and money, FICM has instituted procedural options that allow the crafting of a process that is commensurate with the dispute. With FICM Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures, parties can choose a process that limits depositions, document requests and e-discovery. When parties utilizing FICM Comprehensive Arbitration Rules elect to use these procedures, they agree to the voluntary and informal exchange of all non-privileged documents and other information relevant to the dispute. These rules are an innovative step taken by FICM to guarantee that its clients can have an efficient process if they choose.
