Noppramart Thammateeradaycho, a counsel in Tilleke & Gibbins’ dispute resolution practice, was chosen to serve on the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) International Court of Arbitration. She was elected to the court by the ICC World Council, the organization’s governing body, for a three-year term starting on July 1, 2021.
The ICC International Arbitration Court is the world’s leading arbitration body. While the court does not itself issue judgments on disputed matters, the body provides judicial supervision of arbitral proceedings around the world. The court’s key activities include overseeing the appointment and replacement of arbitrators, as well as deciding on challenges against arbitrators; monitoring the speed, efficiency, and proper conduct of arbitration proceedings; considering and approving arbitral awards; setting and managing fees; and overseeing pre-arbitration emergency proceedings.
Noppramart joins the ICC International Court of Arbitration in a cohort that is one of the court’s most representative ever, in terms of both gender and geographical diversity. The newly seated body will continue focusing on carrying out the court’s main aims, bolster the effectiveness of arbitration as an alternative dispute resolution mechanism, and ensure that the ICC International Arbitration Court maintains its high regard as the world’s preferred arbitration body.
