LCIA (2014)—arbitration under the LCIA Rules

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19): Many arbitral organisations have responded to the coronavirus pandemic with practical guidance and/or changes to their usual procedures and ways of working. For information on how this content and relevant arbitration proceedings may be impacted, see Practice Note: Arbitral organisations and coronavirus (COVID-19)—practical impact. For additional information, see: Coronavirus (COVID-19) and arbitration—overview.

This Practice Note concerns arbitration proceedings pursuant to the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) Arbitration Rules 2014, effective 1 October 2014 (the LCIA Rules). For practical guidance on arbitration pursuant to the LCIA Rules 2020 (in force 1 October 2020) and the LCIA Rules 1998, consult the relevant Practice Notes here: LCIA arbitration—overview.

The LCIA is a well-established, international arbitral institution and the second most prominent arbitration institution in Europe (after the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC)). It is equipped to handle the full range of disputes up to the largest, most complex international commercial arbitration proceedings. Most of the arbitrations which the LCIA administers are commenced under the LCIA Rules but it also administers, and provides other services, such as fundholding and acting as an appointing authority, in arbitrations under ad hoc arbitration rules, notably the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Arbitration Rules.
