Netherlands Arbitration Institute

The NAI offers arbitration, binding advice, and mediation services to resolve your commercial dispute efficiently.  Arbitration is a fast, expert, and effective alternative to state court litigation and the standard for international dispute resolution. Read more about why you should opt for NAI arbitration.

More about the NAI and statistics

The NAI distinguishes itself in the following ways

  • NAI arbitration is fast and efficient. With an average duration of less than nine months to obtain a binding and final decision, NAI arbitration enables you to resolve disputes quickly so you can get on with your business.
  • NAI arbitration is fair value. Parties save on lawyers’ fees because a dispute is resolved in a matter of months instead of many years. Moreover, if a party is successful the other party is usually ordered to pay the costs of the arbitration, including the lawyers’ fees of the successful party. Notably, NAI arbitration is less expensive than ICC or LCIA arbitration.
  • Enforceable interim relief with no need to commence proceedings on the merits? Save time, costs, and company resources with NAI summary arbitral proceedings.
