The following table includes statistics for the number of appointments, arbitrations and awards published in recent years, including 2016.  The statistics for 2014, 2015 and 2016 include figures provided by full and aspiring full members of the LMAA as well as from barristers accepting appointments on LMAA Terms. They do not however include figures from supporting members of the LMAA accepting arbitration appointments. The statistics are not therefore a full capture of the number of appointments accepted on LMAA Terms in London in 2016 and so may slightly understate the complete figures. They do, however, show the number of new matters being referred to arbitration in London under LMAA Terms in 2016 as remaining high notwithstanding (or possibly because of) the prevailing poor drybulk market conditions. The number of awards published also remains firm at a high level.

These figures have been adjusted to reflect the fact that the same arbitration will show up in more than one return if full members involved as part of a tribunal of more than one arbitrator, according to the formulas used previously in producing the figures in the past Spring newsletters.
