The London Maritime Arbitrators Association (‘LMAA’) is an association of practising maritime arbitrators. It has 30 Full Members, who are all full-time arbitrators, and a further 28 Aspiring Full Members. Amongst its arbitrating membership, the LMAA can offer expertise across the breadth of the maritime sector from seagoing experience (deck and engine), through shipbroking, derivatives and hedging, shipbuilding and sale and purchase, ship management, commodities and cargo operations experience, to maritime litigation and judicial experience of maritime and other commercial disputes.
The LMAA produces a series of procedural rules to assist its users in relation to the running of arbitrations. It has a Small Claims Procedure (‘SCP’) which is designed for the determination of small claims up to a recommended limit of US$ 100,000, an Intermediate Claims Procedure (‘ICP’) which is designed for the determination of claims between US$ 100,000 and US$ 400,000 and the LMAA Terms which cater for all larger and more complex disputes.
The LMAA is not an arbitral institution and does not administer or become involved in individual arbitrations conducted on its Terms and Procedures, save for the making of default appointments (where needed and where the procedural rules allow) and offering award certification services to support enforcement actions.
Further details of the LMAA’s arbitrating members, Terms and Procedures, services and statistics are all available on the LMAA website.
