Place of arbitration — Arbitration

This chapter describes the most prominent Brazilian arbitration institutions. These include the Center of Arbitration and Mediation of the Chamber of Commerce Brazil-Canada (CAM-CCBC); the Chamber of Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CIESP/FIESP Chamber); the Chamber of Arbitration of the Market (CAM do Mercado); the Chamber of Mediation and Entrepreneurial Arbitration—Brazil (CAMARB); the Center of Arbitration and Mediation (AMCHAM Center); the Brazilian Center of Mediation and Arbitration (CBMA Center); and the FGV Chamber of Mediation and Arbitration (FGV Chamber). The chapter analyses the limitation of the chambers as well as the aspects that may help in the choice of one of them when executing the arbitration agreement. It also looks at the solutions that have been offered by these chambers for complex matters, such as (i) multiparty arbitration; (ii) connection between procedures; (iii) diversity in the formation of the arbitral tribunals; (iv) and disclosure of information regarding the procedure and the arbitral award. It must be mentioned that, in 2017, the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), by means of its Court of Arbitration, opened an office in São Paulo to manage arbitration procedures that have minimum contact with parties or with the Brazilian headquarters.
