Oslo Chamber of Commerce

Institute for Arbitration and Dispute Resolution

We offer methods of arbitration and mediation as a private alternative to litigation through the public courts, and are Norway’s only body for institutional dispute resolution.

Arbitrators affiliated with the ADRI are commercial lawyers, judges and legal academics, and are among the country’s most experienced in the practice of alternative dispute resolution.

The methods offered are arbitration, fast-track arbitration and mediation, as well as expert assistance to prevent disputes from arising.
We also offer advice on the use of arbitration and dispute resolution clauses when contracts are entered into.

Dispute resolutions


When arbitration is used, the parties leave the decision concerning a dispute over which they have complete discretion to a private tribunal.

Benefits compared with the use of public courts:

  • Expertise – liberty to choose arbitrators with knowledge of the business sector concerned)
  • Fast process – faster than normal court proceedings
  • Confidentiality – the case is exempt from public disclosure
  • Easier enforcement of decisions in many countries, pursuant to the New York Convention


  • The parties must have previously agreed to the use of arbitration.

Please note that an agreement to resolve disputes through arbitration precludes normal litigation of the same question through the courts, and arbitration decisions cannot be appealed.

«Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or in connection with this contract, or the breach, termination or invalidity thereof, shall be finally settled by arbitration in accordance with the Rules of the Arbitration and Dispute Resolution Institute of the Oslo Chamber of Commerce in force at any time.»
