The following table includes statistics for the number of appointments, arbitrations and awards published in recent years, including 2018.  

As with 2014 - 2017, the 2018 statistics include figures provided by Full and Aspiring Full members of the LMAA as well as by barristers known to accept appointments on LMAA Terms and Procedures.

 

These figures do not however include figures from other Supporting Members of the LMAA who accept arbitration appointments or indeed from any other arbitrators worldwide who accept appointments on LMAA Terms and Procedures.  The statistics are not therefore a full capture of the number of appointments, references and awards under LMAA Terms and Procedures in 2018 and will almost certainly understate the complete figures.

 

In a continuing flat market, the statistics remain robust with over 2500 appointments made in total and over 500 awards published last year.

 

As in previous years the figures in respect of the total number of awards and references have been adjusted according to formulae previously adopted to reflect the fact that the same arbitration reference and award is likely to appear in the figures provided by more than one LMAA member where the tribunal is made up of more than one arbitrator.
