In 2011, the New York State
Bar Task Force on New York Law in International Matters called for the
creation of a permanent center for international arbitration in New
York. That call has now been answered.
Beginning late Spring 2013,
the New York
International Arbitration Center (NYIAC) will open a premier facility for the conduct of
international arbitration in the heart of Manhattan, steps from Grand
Central Station, Times Square, the Empire State Building and the United
Nations. NYIAC will serve as a prime destination for international
arbitration hearings (however administered), mediation proceedings and
conferences of all kinds. NYIAC will provide world-class hearing
rooms, breakout rooms and other amenities that can accommodate
arbitrations of any size, including large, multi-party arbitrations and
offer full technological capabilities, including high-tech video
conferencing and built-in facilities for simultaneous interpretation
creating a seamless experience, freeing parties and counsel to focus on
the matters at hand.
addition, the NYIAC website, www.NYIAC.org, will be a
valuable resource to the international arbitration community around the
world by providing links to valuable international arbitration resources
such as institutional rules and model clauses, as well as published
awards, guidelines and other research.
