The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Nigeria, in collaboration with the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), has announced the inaugural ICC Nigeria Arbitration Days.

Participants will include company executives, lawyers in private and corporate practice, arbitration and ADR practitioners, judges, accountants, architects, quantity surveyors and expert witnesses. The event promises excellent networking opportunities and insights from renowned local and international arbitration practitioners.

Experts will share insights on global developments in international arbitration, emphasising its role as the preferred mechanism for resolving complex business disputes across sectors such as EPC contracts, oil and gas, LNG, shipping, telecommunications, manufacturing, international trade, construction, infrastructure and financial services.

Scheduled for July 3rd and 4th, 2024, at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, the event will mark a significant milestone in the field of international arbitration and alternative dispute resolution (ADR), ICC said.

Building on the success of the ICC Africa Conference on International Arbitration, which was hosted in Nigeria from 2016 to 2023 and now moves to Nairobi, Kenya, the ICC Nigeria Arbitration Days will explore the theme, ‘Harnessing the Prospects of Arbitration and ADR in Emerging International Arbitration Hubs’.

As Nigeria strives to attract Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) across all sectors of the economy, the ability to manage and resolve disputes effectively is crucial, ICC said.

“The ICC – Nigeria Arbitration Days will be a gathering of the brightest minds in Arbitration and ADR to shape the future of dispute resolution in Africa, with participants walking away with the knowledge, connections and inspiration to revolutionise their practice and transform the continent’s arbitration landscape,” Chairman of the ICC – Nigeria Arbitration and ADR Commission, Prof. Dorothy Udeme Ufot, said.
