Drafting arbitration agreements: checklist

A checklist summarising the main points to consider when drafting arbitration agreements.

For more detailed guidance on drafting arbitration agreements, see Practice notes, Drafting international arbitration agreements: an overview and Hybrid, multi-tiered and carve-out dispute resolution clauses.
