Set to open in autumn 2020, the Cayman International Arbitration Centre (CIAC) offers modern technology in a private, environmentally sustainable setting. Modern national arbitration law, cutting edge technology, competitive costs, efficient administration, flexibility, confidentiality, a high level of neutrality and internationalism, and access to high quality arbitrators makes CIAC the easy choice for your next arbitration or dispute resolution.

 

Assisted by the Center for Legal and Court Technology (CLCT), a joint initiative of William & Mary Law School and the National Center for State Courts, a U.S. organisation that assists American state courts and courts worldwide, CIAC will open at Camana Bay with state-of-the-art technology to offer parties a new and innovative option for international arbitration in a jurisdiction that is already familiar to many practitioners offering legal and financial services.

 

OUR VISION

"Human Driven, Technology Enhanced"

Law

 

The Cayman Islands adopted modern arbitration statute based on the UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration 1985 (as amended in 2006) and the English Arbitration Act 1996 when it enacted the Arbitration Law 2012. There is a strong history of enforcement proceedings in relation to foreign awards and the Cayman Islands is an attractive location due to the relative ease and speed of obtaining enforcement of a foreign award. 

Facilities

 

CIAC will offer state-of-the-art facilities consisting of two large hearing rooms, three meeting rooms that can be used for breakout sessions or other meetings and a board room. Emphasis will be placed on confidentiality and privacy through the use of double walls and sound proofing. Located in Camana Bay there is easy access to world class restaurants, shopping, hotels, and beaches.

Experts

 

The Cayman Islands offers unparalleled access to accomplished and experienced arbitrators, lawyers, service providers, financial institutions and investment fund industry participants. Check back soon for more information about our expert panels.

Technology

 

The technology CIAC will provide goes beyond simple video conferencing. CIAC's hearing rooms will be modeled after CLCT's McGlothlin Courtroom, the most technologically advanced courtroom in the world. Technology developments will focus on evidence presentation, the court record, video communication and remote appearances for arbitrators, counsel, witnesses, interpreters, court reporters, and other parties, assistive technology, and infrastructure. Flexibility and ease of use will be key. The technology is a tool and whether parties choose to use all of the technology options, just some of them, or none at all, the rooms at CIAC will be designed to accommodate everything.
