ACICA wins arbitration award in Paris

The Australian Centre for International Commercial Arbitration (ACICA) has won the Global Arbitration Review (GAR) Guide to Regional Arbitration Award for the Arbitral Institution that Impressed at GAR's 14th annual awards ceremony.

ACICA Vice-President Judith Levine picked up the award on the organisation’s behalf at the Paris event on 21 March. According to ACICA President Georgia Quick, the win “recognises the culmination of years of effective case management, bright ideas, and hard work” from the organisation’s secretariat, board and the wider Australian arbitration community.

Quick highlighted ACICA’s work on major complex disputes that have involved international parties. In 2021, the organisation filed 100 arbitration cases with a total value exceeding US$15.5bn ($24bn). That same year, the organisation presented the 2021 ACICA Administered Arbitration Rules, reflecting international best practice for efficient proceedings.

ACICA also introduced several key initiatives aimed at enhancing diversity, sustainability, and accessibility in 2023/2024, including the ACICA Diversity Committee, the ACICA Sustainability Taskforce, and the ACICA Pacific Island Practitioner Scholarship.

"This is an incredible honour for the institution and we are grateful for GAR's recognition of the significant work that ACICA undertakes to drive improvements across all aspects of the institution's work. We congratulate all those shortlisted in this category who represent the commitment, hard work and dedication it takes to provide high quality case management, to provide thought leadership, and to build arbitration communities across the world", ACICA Secretary-General Deborah Tomkinson said.
