Founded in 1979, JAMS is the largest private provider of alternative dispute resolution services (ADR) worldwide. With locations in major cities around the globe, JAMS and its global network of panelists are responsible for resolving thousands of the world’s important cases every year. JAMS handled over 15,000 cases in 2018.
JAMS serves the Latin American and Caribbean business and legal industries in the following areas:
- JAMS is an arbitral and ADR institution with model arbitration clauses and innovative, solution-driven arbitration rules to promote efficiency and party autonomy. Parties and counsel may select an arbitrator from the JAMS panel or use an outside arbitrator of their choice. JAMS has a multilingual case-management team and thorough experience handling disputes involving Latin American counsel and parties.
- JAMS can administer cases under the rules of any major institution, in addition to its own International Arbitration Rules & Procedures. JAMS neutrals regularly serve as arbitrators for other institutions, such as the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) and Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC), in ad hoc procedures or under UNCITRAL rules.
- JAMS International Arbitration Centers in New York and Los Angeles provide state-of-the-art facilities built specifically for arbitral hearings. In addition, JAMS provides ideal venues for dispute resolution at its many Resolution Centers worldwide, in cities such as Miami, London, San Francisco and Dallas, among many others.
JAMS resolves business and legal disputes by providing efficient, cost-effective and impartial ways to overcome barriers at any stage of conflict, relying on its worldwide leadership and experience in mediation and other ADR processes. That allows its staff and panelists to identify opportunities for better solutions in the context of an arbitration or independent of it.
Through a combination of industry-specific experience, first-class client service, top-notch facilities and highly trained panelists, JAMS is uniquely positioned to serve the Latin American and Caribbean regions.
