Irvine, Calif. – JAMS, the largest private provider of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services worldwide, is pleased to announce its participation in and sponsorship of events for four international arbitration weeks through the end of 2023 and into 2024.
According to data from international arbitration institutions, international arbitration filings have grown steadily at more than 3% per year from 2010 to 2019, with a 9.9% spike in 2020.* As international arbitration continues its rise in the United States, many regions and local legal organizations are hosting arbitration weeks focused on international matters. JAMS is pleased to support these efforts, which promote collaboration and education within the international arbitration community through specialized programming. Events will include presentations, panel discussions and networking opportunities that highlight key developments in international arbitration and the tools, best practices and people that support it.
“As cross-border business continues to rise in an increasingly global economy, we believe that the use of arbitration to resolve disputes will only increase. To that end, JAMS is proud to partner with the organizations that are working to showcase United States venues for international arbitration and promote growth and understanding in this area.”
- Chris Poole, JAMS CEO
