The frequency of NAI summary arbitral proceedings commenced highlights the added value that these proceedings continue to offer to parties choosing the NAI Rules. 2021 saw a four year high in the number of summary arbitral proceedings, recording a 57% increase compared to the previous year. The NAI summary arbitral proceedings continue to differentiate themselves in that these proceedings, if seated in the Netherlands, may be commenced prior to, and separately from, arbitral proceedings on the merits.

The majority of appointments of arbitrators in 2021 were by the parties and co-arbitrators directly (56%), however, a sizable number of arbitrators were appointed through the NAI’s list procedure (33%), and directly by the NAI (11%). 2021 saw 13% more arbitrator appointments. It is interesting to note that the list procedure saw the largest increase compared to 2020, doubling its share from 16% to 33%.

The NAI recognizes the disappointing stagnation and decrease of gender diversity in arbitrator appointments in 2021. While 2020 showed promising progress, 2021’s numbers underscore the fact that continuous effort is required to ensure gender diversity in all methods of appointment.

The diversity in the sectors of disputes commenced in 2020 highlights the NAI’s position as the largest general arbitration institute in the Netherlands. It also highlights the breadth and depth of the NAI’s arbitrator pool, who are able to apply their expertise in a diverse range of disputes. 2021 saw Shipbuilding added to the overview due to the increased number of shipbuilding-disputes commenced under the NAI Rules.
