The WA Arbitration Initiative, together with Francis Burt Chambers, FTI Consulting and ICC Australia, is pleased to present the results of the inaugural WA Arbitration Survey.
The Survey was conducted at the end of 2018 to interrogate the nature and extent of arbitration activity with a WA connection in the 2017/2018 financial year.
The results show significant arbitration activity and an active arbitration community in Western Australia.
There is significant experience both in domestic and international arbitration, particularly in the infrastructure, resources and energy sectors.
The Survey shows there exists a solid foundation from which WA Arbitration can develop and grow. The Survey data can be used to provide an evidential base for the promotion of Western Australia as an internationally recognised centre of expertise and excellence in commercial arbitration, particularly in relation to disputes arising within the mining and oil & gas industries for which Western Australia is internationally renowned.
