Miami: 21st Century International Arbitration Hub for the Americas
This website is designed to help you find the experts, services and resources for International Arbitration
The Miami International Arbitration Society (MIAS) was founded to promote international arbitration and mediation in Miami with its primary focus the resolution of commercial and investment disputes relating to the Americas.
Miami has promoted international arbitration since the early 90s and with its ideal location and its bilingual professional population Miami has developed a stellar reputation for arbitration. Every year the city attracts experts in the field from across the globe by hosting international annual conferences, for example, the annual ICC Miami Conference on International Arbitration and the 2014 ICCA Congress. (In 2022, Miami will host the IBA's annual conference).
MIAS works to enhance Miami's extensive infrastructure by supporting legislation (such as the UNCITRAL Model Law which Florida enacted in 2011), academic programs, and by promoting local international arbitration conferences. MIAS also provides training and legal updates to its members and the local judiciary and a forum for the exchange of ideas on the latest developments in this growing field.
Skilled arbitrators, bilingual professionals, a learned judiciary, state-of-the-art facilities, budget friendly resources and one of the largest passenger and freight airports in the world combine to make Miami the metropolitan gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean.
