Types of disputes considered

The Arbitration Court has the right to consider the following categories of disputes:

  • disputes arising from commercial, economic and trade contracts and agreements;
  • disputes arising from civil legal relations;
  • disputes arising from investment contracts and agreements, including corporate asset purchase agreements;
  • disputes arising from agreements and contracts, concluded in professional sports;
  • disputes arising from labor contracts.

The Arbitration Court considers disputes arising from commercial, economic and trade agreements and contracts, when at least one of the disputing parties is not the resident of the USA - a legal entity of foreign jurisdiction or an individual - a citizen of a foreign state.

The Arbitration Court shall consider disputes arising from civil legal and labor relations, as well as disputes arising from agreements and contracts concluded in professional sports, provided that the disputing parties or at least one of the parties is a resident of the USA.

The Arbitration Court shall consider disputes between non-residents of the USA, arising from civil legal and labor relations, as well as disputes arising from agreements and contracts concluded in professional sports, provided that it is not inconsistent with laws of the countries represented by their residents - the disputing parties.

Under the standards of international law, the Federal legislation and the legislation of the relevant states of the USA, and also on the basis of its Regulations, the Arbitration Court shall act as the court of arbitration when considering disputes between the residents of the USA.
