Alternative Dispute Resolution

Arbitration and Mediation Services

Alternative Dispute Resolution or ADR is usually an umbrella term for processes, other than judicial determination, in which an impartial person (an ADR practitioner) assists those in a dispute to resolve the issues between them.


T he T&T Chamber is the Caribbean representative for the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). Through our linkage with the T&T Chamber and, by extension, the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the Dispute Resolution Centre is authorised to recommend arbitrators and manage the logistical operations for arbitrations filed with the International Court of Arbitration in Paris, but with the intention of being heard locally.

The Centre offers a choice of local and international arbitrators, some of whom are retired High Court Judges. Moreover, the Dispute Resolution Centre has had long-standing representation on the International Court of Arbitration. For many years the esteemed Mr. Justice Alcalde Warner served as the Centre’s representative on the ICC’s International Court of Arbitration in Paris, France. With the passing of Justice Warner, the Honourable Mr. Justice Roger Hamel-Smith, a former Acting Chief Justice and now member of the Judicial and Legal Service Commission, took up the mantle and is the Centre’s current representative on the International Court of Arbitration.

In 2010, through a joint initiative with the Judiciary, the Centre became an innovator of Court-Annexed Mediation which was spearheaded by the Honourable Chief Justice Ivor Archie. This groundbreaking initiative resulted in quick, cost-effective mediations with a 60% success rate!
