David Kasdan, Worldwide Reporting LLP


“We had hearings spanning almost three weeks in a complex case involving simultaneous translation and video-conference testimony from outside the US. The physical facilities accommodated a large number of counsel, witnesses, and corporate observers as well as teams of translators. In addition, break-out space was convenient, and the NYIAC staff were always helpful and gracious.”

Hon. Bernard J. Fried (Ret.) Arbitrator & Mediator, JAMS


“I served as a member of an ICC tribunal, which held a two-week hearing at the New York International Arbitration Center, located very conveniently in mid-town Manhattan. It was an extremely good venue choice: the “state-of-the art” Hearing Room was spacious, light and airy, comfortable, and acoustically superb. The staff was courteous and very responsive to our logistical and administrative requests. I enjoyed the time spent at the hearing. In short, NYIAC proved to be an impressive location for our arbitration.”

Philip Allen Lacovara, Independent Arbitrator Senior Counsel, Mayer Brown LLP


“NYIAC has an excellent large-scale hearing room, which accommodated several dozen people comfortably and contained state-of-the-art technology (allowing for effortless use of laptop presentation on numerous screens throughout). In addition, the staff of NYIAC went above and beyond to make the hearing week run smoothly and comfortably. We appreciate NYIAC’s outstanding service to the parties, counsel, and tribunal.”

“Arbitrators travel first class at NYIAC.  The facilities are great and the attentive staff has anticipated every need.  From an email in advance asking what you would like for lunch on the first day of the hearing to a large breakout room for the panel with a conference table, a window, a countertop filled with high-end snacks and soft drinks,  supplies of pens, pads, post-its, and the like, and an easy to use Wi-Fi log in, the NYIAC makes the arbitrator very comfortable.”

“Our tribunal chose NYIAC as a meeting place for post-hearing deliberation sessions. The meeting room was very well appointed and conducive to efficient work. The facilities as a whole were superb, and the support from NYIAC staff helped to make our experience in New York seamless.”

Arbitral tribunal comprising David Haigh, Bruno Boesch, Abraham Sofaer


“The NYIAC facilities easily rival those of other major international arbitration centers. The rooms are large and comfortable. The technology is state-of-the-art. Our hearing included testimony via video conference, and it went flawlessly. I have no doubt that NYIAC will for many years to come be the venue of choice for international arbitration hearings in the big apple.”

Ank Santens, White & Case LLP


“Holding a hearing at the center is far easier than using a law office or a hotel conference center not only because of the superior facilities, but more importantly because NYIAC understands how hearings work and very helpfully can anticipate the needs of the participants.  The facility itself is state of the art and provides a very comfortable atmosphere with large, private breakout rooms close by.  A readily available kitchen facility is also useful for long hearings.”

David M. Lindsey, Chaffetz & Lindsey LLP


“With New York as the epicenter for international disputes, businesses, arbitrators and practitioners are fortunate to have the New York International Arbitration Center.  During a recent arbitration, I found the Center to be one of New York’s premier venues for arbitrations, with state-of-the-art hearing and breakout rooms.  Additionally, the staff was very accommodating, and went above and beyond to ensure the arbitral proceedings ran smoothly.”
