Who We Are
NCIAC is a community of professionals who share an interest in international arbitration and seek to promote its practice in California at the very highest level. The continuing globalization of business transactions has led to greater demands for resolution of commercial disputes through international arbitration and mediation. California is in many ways an ideal venue for such arbitrations, with its international appeal, vibrant economy, world-class facilities, and location on the Pacific Rim.
In addition, NCIAC serves as a resource for international arbitration and mediation practitioners, whether they be lawyers, arbitrators, experts, or other professionals, as well as companies and organizations seeking to use international arbitration in their commercial endeavors. NCIAC regularly provides opportunities for discussion, continuing legal education and other professional development, all focused on international arbitration. It is also NCIAC’s pleasure to host meetings and social events with our colleagues around the world as they visit California. If you practice or are interested in international arbitration and mediation, we hope you will join our community.
