Sole Practitioners Program

To become a member of USCIB’s Arbitration Committee, you must be a member of USCIB. To find out if your corporation, firm or organization is already a member or for information about becoming a member, please contact Alison Hoiem at The following information is intended for sole legal practitioners who want to join the Arbitration Committee.

Why Join?

USCIB (ICC-USA) serves as the International Chamber of Commerce National Committee representative in the United States. Through its affiliation with ICC, USCIB provides access to the ICC Commission on Arbitration & ADR and the ICC International Court of Arbitration, one of the world’s leading international arbitral institutions. Additionally, USCIB serves as a resource for ICC’s multifaceted dispute resolution services. The USCIB Arbitration Committee is the primary vehicle whereby members have access to the ICC Commission on Arbitration & ADR, and are be eligible to serve on ICC task forces. Examples of recent task forces include: Task Force on Emergency Arbitrator Proceedings, Task Force on  the Revision of the Rules of ICC as Appointing Authority in  UNCITRAL or other Ad Hoc Arbitration, and Task Force on Maximizing the Probative Value of Witness Evidence.


The Sole Practitioner membership is an individual membership available to attorneys and arbitrators in private practice. This membership group aims to give individuals, who are not associated with a law firm or a company the same opportunities within the Arbitration Committee available to members of USCIB. This special membership opportunity is only available for the Arbitration Committee, and Sole Practitioners would not be granted access to other USCIB policy committees.
