Awards of Interest in International Commercial Arbitration: New York Law and Practice

The New York City Bar Association’s International Commercial Disputes Committee (ICDC) (Richard Mattiaccio, Chair) has published a report on pre-award and post-award interest in international arbitration cases that are seated in New York and that involve contracts governed by substantive New York law. The report addresses key questions including the scope of arbitrator discretion and factors that arbitrators may consider in the exercise of their discretion, including, but not limited to, the nine percent pre-judgment interest rate applicable to New York state court judgments. The report also provides appendices in which New York arbitral awards of interest and New York court decisions related to interest awards are summarized. Read the full report here.


NYIAC Case Law Library

On January 1, 2015, NYIAC began collecting and cataloguing international arbitration decisions issued by New York courts. Now those decisions – and key identifying information such as the decision date, the stage of the case, and the main issues treated by the court – are available on the NYIAC website. This project was made possible by Mark Stadnyk at Norton Rose Fulbright (US) and Gretta Walters at Chaffetz Lindsey LLP.
