Arbitral rules — Arbitral agreements — Recognition and enforcement — Awards — Place of arbitration

This chapter evaluates the merits of the United States as a venue for international arbitration proceedings. It discusses the history and development of arbitration in the United States; the processes and rules involved as well as the role of courts in the conduct of arbitration proceedings; and rules for arbitral awards. It concludes that the United States — and New York, Florida, and Texas, in particular — offers a favorable venue for international arbitration. The Federal Arbitration Act offers a simple, yet effective, framework for the enforcement of arbitration agreements and arbitral awards. US courts will act to further the strong federal policy in favor of arbitration by strictly enforcing arbitration agreements and awards, while at the same time minimizing judicial interference into the arbitral process. In addition to enjoying legislative and judicial support, parties to international arbitration can find the institutional support they need from experienced arbitral institutions that offer well developed arbitral rules.
