Miami Wins Bid for ICCA 2014

Following a presentation by a delegation from the Miami International Arbitration Society, led by Chairman Burton Landy (of the Akerman Senterfitt law firm) Miami was chosen to host a key international legal conference in 2014. At its annual Council meeting held in Geneva on May 21, the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (ICCA) comprised of the world’s most prominent practitioners and scholars in the field of international commercial arbitration, selected Miami as the venue for its biennial Congress. Founded in 1961, ICCA is the leading global organization focused on the practice of international commercial arbitration. This Congress, often referred to as the “Olympics” of the international commercial arbitration world, will be attended by 1,000 international lawyers from around the world who will be coming to Miami to hear presentations by the most prominent international arbitration practitioners and scholars in the field.
