The 2010 International Arbitration Survey: Choices in International Arbitration conducted by Queen Mary University London and sponsored by White & Case revealed several interesting findings on corporate choices concerning international arbitration.
The survey is one of the largest empirical studies ever undertaken of corporate attitudes and practices regarding international arbitration.
Specific findings of the survey include that English law was used most frequently in arbitration, followed by New York law; that London was named as the preferred seat of arbitration, followed by Geneva, Paris, Tokyo, Singapore and New York; and that the ICC International Court of Arbitration is the most preferred and widely used arbitration institution. The survey presents assessment and desires regarding i.a. the appointment of arbitrators and confidentiality in arbitration.
