The International Centre For Arbitration and ADR

Strategically located in the commercial city of Lagos, Nigeria, ICAA is the first purpose built ADR facility on the continent of Africa. Spanning 1900 square meters, the ICAA’s grand architecture is complemented by marble hallways, contemporary furniture and gorgeous ocean views of the Lekki Atlantic Peninsula.
The impressive facility provides an international standard of service accompanied by warm African hospitality. It is an ideal venue for not only dispute resolution hearings and proceedings, but a range of corporate events. It was designed from the end-users perspective and created considering all the conveniences for professional clients, including:
large sophisticated meeting rooms with ergonomic seating, soundproof carpets and adjoining break-out rooms; transcription and business centre services; library resources; video conferencing; luxury lounges and a cafeteria; let-able office spaces; ample parking; and 24-hours CCTV.

Our price list is catered to meet all budgets and expectations. Bookings of the large hearing rooms are inclusive of three break-out rooms, projector screens, writing pads and pens.

The ICAA is owned and managed by the Lagos Court of Arbitration (LCA), an alternative dispute resolution administering institution whose objective is to provide case management for arbitration and mediation, along with a host of other support services ranging from clause correction and neutral appointment to fund-holding and facilities hire, all whilst upholding best practices in domestic and international arbitration and ADR.

Truly a hub for ADR services; within the premises of the ICAA are the offices of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (UK) Nigeria Branch (CIArb), Nigerian Institute of Chartered Arbitrators  (NICA), Lagos Chamber of Commerce International Arbitration Centre (LACIAC) and the Maritime Arbitration Association of Nigeria (MAAN).

We welcome you to take a tour of the facilities to experience first-hand what we have to offer.
